about the center. The angular displacement with reference to the vertical axis

(the dotted line) is (radians), and the moment of inertia of the spacecraft is J

By examining the closed-loop poles, show that irrespective of the value of

the controllers gain A, this proportional control scheme is inadequate to

stabilize the system.

velocity feedback is used. This is depicted in Figure 4.
