Area under the curve of a roll data of satellite

  1. Feb 27, 2013 #1
    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.

    Well, it would have units of "degrees times seconds". Do you know of any "meaningful" quantity that has those units?

    It would probably kill some time.

    No meaning of degree seconds that I think of
