Elliptic Trajectory

Elliptic Trajectory

 

one of the types of trajectories that may be followed by a mass point or the center of mass of a body moving in a Newtonian gravitational field. Suppose, for example a body located near the surface of the earth is given an initial velocity v0 < v2, where Elliptic Trajectory km/sec is the escape velocity (R is the earth’s radius, and g is the acceleration of gravity). If atmospheric resistance is disregarded, the body’s center of mass describes, in a first approximation, an elliptic trajectory.

The full statement by Tass said: "The satellite is now revolving round the earth along an elliptic trajectory at the estimated height of up to 565 miles.
By increasing the time duration to friction reducing moment t\, major axis of the elliptic trajectory varies very slightly (Fig.
Controlling dry friction during both the semi-periods of the plane excitation, the part on the plane gets positioned and performs search along elliptic trajectory.

The performed investigation showed, that under the same friction coefficient and excitation frequency, as the plane is excited by the elliptic trajectory, the displacement of the part from the initial point to the centre of the steady search motion is bigger than that under circular excitation of the plane.
