Science

Bi-elliptic Transfer:
• $$r_1$$ is the SMA of the initial orbit
• $$r_2$$ is the SMA of the final orbit
• $$r_b$$ is the common apoapsis radius of the two transfer ellipses, and is a free parameter of the manoeuvre
• $$a_1$$ and $$a_2$$ are the semimajor axes of the two elliptical transfer orbits, which are given by $$a_1=\frac{r_1+r_b}2$$ $$a_2=\frac{r_2+r_b}2$$
• The $$\Delta v$$ requirements are:
$$\Delta v_1=\sqrt{\frac{2\mu}{r_1}-\frac{\mu}{a_1}}-\sqrt{\frac{\mu}{r_1}}$$ $$\Delta v_2=\sqrt{\frac{2\mu}{r_b}-\frac{\mu}{a_2}}-\sqrt{\frac{2\mu}{r_b}-\frac{\mu}{a_1}}$$ $$\Delta v_3=\sqrt{\frac{2\mu}{r_2}-\frac{\mu}{a_2}}-\sqrt{\frac{\mu}{r_2}}$$ Drag: $$F_D=\frac 1 2\rho u^2C_DA$$ Fitts' Law: $$\text{ID} = \log_2 \Bigg(\frac{2D} {W}\Bigg)$$ Hohmann Transfer: $$\Delta v_1=\sqrt{\frac{\mu}{a_1}}(\sqrt{\frac{2a_2}{a_1+a_2}}-1)$$ $$\Delta v_2=\sqrt{\frac{\mu}{a_2}}(1-\sqrt{\frac{2a_1}{a_1+a_2}})$$ Kinematic Equations: $$d=v_it+\frac 1 2at^2$$ $$v_f=\sqrt{v_i^2+2ad}$$ $$v_f=v_i+at$$ $$d=t\frac{v_i+v_f}2$$ Orbital Inclination Change: $$\Delta v= {2\sin(\frac{\Delta{i}}{2})\sqrt{1-e^2}\cos(\omega+f)na \over {1+e\cos(f)}}$$ Orbit Period: $$P=2\pi\sqrt\frac{a^3}\mu$$ Orbit Velocity: $$v=\sqrt{\frac{\mu}a}$$ Standard Gravitational Parameter: $$\mu=GM$$ Synchronous Orbit: $$a=\sqrt[3]{\frac{\mu t^2}{4\pi^2}}$$ Tsiolkovsky Rocket Equation: $$\Delta v=v_e\ln{\frac{m_i}{m_f}}$$ $$\Delta v=gI_{sp}\ln{\frac{m_i}{m_f}}$$
