## Main Question or Discussion Point

Dear Forum friends,

Here's a problem I can't solve: The space shuttle Atlantis tries to put a satellite in a circular orbit with vo velocity. But they make a mistake and the actual velocity is vo(1+e).

I have to find the eccentricity of the orbit when e>0 and e<0, considering |e|<<1.

Can you guys help me with this?Thanks!
