could anyone please explain to me how exactly these work? i mean, i know its due to conservation of angular momentum that allows spacecraft s to rotate in the opposite direction of the momentum wheel acceleration. but could anyone perhaps go through some equations of the process, like say if i had an 100 kg satellite and 10 kg wheel. how would i obtain the angular acceleration needed to turn the satellite X amount? thanks in advanced :D
