Question: for problems 2 4 assume the earth and planet...

Question details

For problems 2 - 4, assume the Earth and planet orbits are circular and that the planet orbit lies in the ecliptic plane. Do problems 2-4 for each destination planet. Calculate the required heliocentric velocity of the spacecraft at Earth departure for a Hohmann transfer to the planets orbit. And calculate the heliocentric velocity at arrival. How does the spacecraft velocity at arrival compare to the planets velocity? 2.
