A satellite is in a circular LEO having an altitude of 200 km and an inclination of 28.5°. Calculate the minimum Av required to transfer this satellite to a circular, geostationary orbit. Consider the line of nodes and line of apsides of the two orbits to coincide and determine the optimal amount of the plane change to be performed at both the periapsis and apoapsis of the transfer orbit.
