FIGURE 8.3.1.- A planet at 0 has two orbiting satellites, one of small mass (M2) moving in a circular orbit and one of negligible mass (M1) moving in an elliptic orbit.

 

FIGURE 8.3.1.- A planet at O has two orbiting satellites, one of small mass (M2) moving in a circular orbit and one of negligible mass (M1) moving in an elliptic orbit. The orbital inclinations are zero and the ratio of average angular velocities mathematical symbol
is near 2; mathematical equation
