Main Question or Discussion Point
I'm having some slight difficulties in calculating the deltav in a hohmann transfer equation. I used the equation from wikipedia (which i hope is correct) but whenever i replace the variables i get an extremly small deltav, is this normal???
[tex]\Delta[/tex]v=[tex]\sqrt{}(\mu/r1)[/tex]*([tex]\sqrt{}(2*r2/(r1+r2)[/tex]1))
r1=6374000 meters
r2=405500000 meters
[tex]\mu=9.814[/tex]
my final result was 0.00122149m/s
it seems like a really small number, is this right or i'm i doing something really wrong?
i attached an excel sheet to show you my work.
thanks in advance
