Lesson 9

Velocities at perihelium and aphelion

Using the deduced equation for the position vector in terms of the orbital angular momentum, we may develop equations to calculate the velocities in the perihelium and in the aphelion.

errata: a correction must be made in the word “aphelium” and substitute it for the proper expression aphelion.
