Description:

Created by David P. Stern, this set of three web pages provides a calculation of paths, times, and distances for a flight to Mars and back. The author uses a Hohmann transfer ellipse between two circular orbits. This is an example and application of Kepler's Laws, which are explained in related web pages. Only algebra is used with Kepler's laws and the equation for the energy of Kepler motion. This is part of an extensive work, "From Stargazers to Stars that uses space science as an introduction to basic physics principles. Also available in French.
