PROBLEM 18.33

The coordinate axes shown represent the principal centroidal axes of inertia of a 3000-lb space probe whose radii
of gyration are k x = 1.375 ft, k y = 1.425 ft, and k z = 1.250 ft. The probe has no angular velocity when a 5-oz
meteorite strikes one of its solar panels at Point A with a velocity v 0 = (2400 ft/s)i − (3000 ft/s) j + (3200 ft/s)k
relative to the probe. Knowing that the meteorite emerges on the other side of the panel with no change in the
direction of its velocity, but with a speed reduced by 20 percent, determine the final angular velocity of the
probe.

radii of gyration are k x = 1.375 ft, k y = 1.425 ft, and k z = 1.250 ft. The probe has no angular velocity when a
5-oz meteorite strikes one of its solar panels at Point A and emerges on the other side of the panel with no
change in the direction of its velocity, but with a speed reduced by 25 percent. Knowing that the final angular
velocity of the probe is ω = (0.05 rad/s)i − (0.12 rad/s) j + ω z k and that the x component of the resulting

PROBLEM 18.35

A 2500-kg probe in orbit about the moon is 2.4 m high and has
octagonal bases of sides 1.2 m. The coordinate axes shown are the
principal centroidal axes of inertia of the probe, and its radii of gyration
are k x = 0.98 m, k y = 1.06 m, and k z = 1.02 m. The probe is equipped
with a main 500-N thruster E and with four 20-N thrusters A, B, C, and
D which can expel fuel in the positive y direction. The probe has an
angular velocity ω = (0.040 rad/s)i + (0.060 rad/s)k when two of the
20-N thrusters are used to reduce the angular velocity to zero.
Determine (a) which of the thrusters should be used, (b) the operating
time of each of these thrusters, (c) for how long the main thruster E
should be activated if the velocity of the mass center of the probe is to
remain unchanged.
