(3.3-16)

Now, since we know two sides and the included angle of the vector
triangle shown in Figure 3.3-4, we can use the law of cosines to solve
for the third side, bV.

bV = v2 + v2 2v V COS "

(3.3-17)

The speed change required at point 2 can be computed in a similar

fashion.

Since the Hohmann transfer is just a special case of the problem
illustrated above, it is not surprising that equation (3.3-17) reduces to
equation (3.3-10) when the flight-path angle, ¢l' is zero.
