    Area under the curve of a roll data of satellite

    Dear Members, I would like to ask if we plot the Roll data of a satellite in degrees vs. the time, and if we take the area under the curve of this roll will give something meaningful? Looking forward for your reply. Regards,

    Difference Between Solar proton event and Coronal mass Ejection

    Hi All Whenever there is a solar activity two things are mentioned, SPE, CME and X-ray. Does anyone know the difference between SPE and CME? I couldn't find a descriptive or convincing answer on these two. What particles are associated with CME, is X-ray a part of CME? And what effects could...

    Silicon solar cell degradation due to solar fluxes

    I am trying to find the Absorbed dose for Silicon cells on a geostationary satellite from a period of (1996 to 2005) The Equation I have is: D(rad) = 1.68e-8 *((1/ρ)*dE/dx) * Phi Where: D is absorbed dose and units are (100 ergs/g or 0.01 J/Kg) (1/ρ)*dE/dx = (MeV*cm^2)/g...

    Calculating the force at a single point of contact

    Hi all May be someone can help me with this problem. There is a isa-chrome60 wire (d=0.5 mm, tensile strength=600 N/mm^2) which is held at both ends using end connectors ( length of the wire = 20mm). And there is a nylon wire (d=0.5 mm) which is under tension (because of torsion spring)...

    Thermal Resistance at a single point

    Hi All I am having a design problem. I want to melt a fishing line which is in contact at a single point with some material. The problem is that I have a 5 V of supply and Power should be between 1-3W. Some other constraints are that the material to which the fishing line is connected should be...

    Converting Thermal Conductivity to Thermal Conduction/Resistance

    Hi all I want to convert thermal conductivity to thermal conductance. The problem is with the units. for thermal conductivity the units are [W/(m.K)] and for thermal conductance the units are [W/K] For E.g for copper thermal conductivity is 400[W/m.K] how can I convert it to thermal...
