- Purpose of use
- finding orbital energy

[7] 2018/04/25 00:54 Male / Under 20 years old / High-school/ University/ Grad student / A little /

- Purpose of use
- Explaining orbital characteristics for a satellite at different altitudes and speeds.
- Comment/Request
- It would be nice to have a clear statement of assumptions for the calculated results. For example, is orbital radius based on a non-elliptical orbit? If an elliptical orbit is assumed, does the radius represent an average? If an elliptical orbit assumed, does the flight velocity represent an average?
