Asked by: Nathan Kingsland
Subject: Satellite orienting w/ 3 gyros
Question: Problem Statement:

A satellite has 3 motorized gyros, one centered in each of the x,y,z axis'.
There is a shift in the y-z plane of (theta)=15 degrees, from time 1 (t1) to time 2 (t2). Which gyro needs to be activated for this shift of (theta) in time (t2-t1), if w=200 rpm, and what is the change in time for this shift.
