Could someone tell me if I'm right or wong...(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I want to calculate de hyperbolic excess speed for a spacecraft that leaves earth parking orbit on a hyperbolic orbit in direction to Jupiter to arrive there in optimum conditions.

It's not an Hohmann heliocentric transfer!!!

so, i though that:

[tex] v_{\infty} = v_{park} - v_{earth/jupiter} [/tex]

Is it right, or is it worng?
