Detailed Description

  415 pgs, 1976, John Wiley & Sons
  ISBN 9780471457039

Kaplan develops concepts from the Newtonian rather than mathematical approach to reinforce the relationship between fundamental physics and the peculiarities of spaceflight. However, he does offer several handy formulas for calculating preliminary trajectory and attitude control to professional spacecraft designers who may use his graduate-level textbook as a reference, and equations and graphs abound throughout. Answers in the back!
