hey guys ^_^(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

could anyone please explain to me how exactly these work? i mean, i know its due to conservation of angular momentum that allows spacecrafts 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
