Kepler's Second Law in Vectors

(Law of Equal Areas)

###
The area inside the ellipse, the net space between the initial (a) and final (b) distances from the smaller to the larger mass, is equal to all other areas measured in the same length of time, regardless of the larger masses position within the ellipse.

Meaning the magnitude of the vector function at the final time (t) can be calculated through √(a^2sin^2(t)+b^2cos^2(t)). Integral of this is arc length. Derivative (acceleration) is proportional to the radius (r).

##
Kepler's Third Law in Vectors

(Law of Harmonies)

###
Period of orbit (T) squared over average distance (d) cubed is known as the 'orbital ratio'

Equal to those of similar average vectors

(T1^2)/(R1^3)≈(T2^2)/(R2^3)

6

## Orbital Harmony

### Orbital systems that are said to have similar average vector magnitudes to one another

7

## Derivative Vector

###
Limit of the position vector function between the vector r(t) from center to a point on a curve and another vector r(t+Δt) that describes that distance after a certain time period as Δt approaches 0

r'(t)=Lim(Δt→0) (r(t+Δt)-r(t))/Δt

11

## Calculating definite Integrals of 3D Cartesian functions

###
Integral of each vector component over the same interval

∫r(t)=∫f(t)i+∫g(t)j+∫h(t)k

12

## Constant radius rule

###
If the radius goes unchanged

r⊙v=0

13

## Net force vector

###
Object mass (M) times acceleration (a: often given as r" or v' even in 3d space) equals the net vector force magnitude acting on that object

M*a=|v|

Always in the velocity direction

14

15

## Constants when integrating vector valued functions

###
Always the initial value of the integral

16

## Rule of constant acceleration

### When calculating trajectories in a gravitational field, acceleration is always constant (usually 9.81m/s^2) while the initial velocity is almost never zero

17

## Maximum height in trajectories

### (sin(a)|Vo|)^2/19.62

18

## Time of flight from gravitational trajectories

21

## Factors in trajectory launch

Radius is determined by:

Angle of elevation (a) and

Initial velocity (Vo) -barrel velocity

θ angle from x-coordinate, determines position

Can calculate using spherical coordinates
