Statement of a problem № 10311


A 20-kg base satellite deploys three sub-satellites, each which has its own thrust capabilities, to perform research on tether propulsion. The weights of sub-satellite A, B, and C are 4 kg, 6 kg, and 8 kg, respectively, and their velocities expressed in m/s are given by vA = 4i - 2j + 2k, vB = i + 4j, vC = 2i + 2j + 4k. At the instant shown, what is the angular momentum HO of the system about the base satellite?
