Question details

Problem 1 a) Determine the location of the point(s) on an elliptic orbit at which the speed is equal to circular orbit speed with the same radius. b) Obtain an expression for the flight path angle at this location. Problem 2 A satellite orbiting the Earth (radius 6378 km) has specific angular momentum h of 70,000 km/s and specific energy e of-10 km/s. Calculate the a) eccentricity of the orbit b) apogee and perigee altitudes Problem 3 he position vector ris given by r=3t41+2t31+9t2K. a) Determine the velocity vector v b) Calculate the specific angular momentum vector h at time 2. Problem 4 An earth-orbiting satellite has a period of 15.5 hr and a perigee radius of 2 earth radii. Determine the semi-major axis of the orbit
