- Homework Statement
- A satellite of mass M kgs has an elliptical orbit of T hours around the Earth with ##Rmax = N * Rmin##.

At one instant, the satellite is at a distance D meters from center of Earth and moving at V km/s.

Q) Find the orbital angular momentum.

- Relevant Equations
- L = r * m * v * sin θ

The section

In this problem,

##\text{r = D, m = M and v = V}##

What is the way to go about finding out ##\theta## as shown in Figure 13.21?
