The velocity histories for different values of γavg are shown in Figure 7.22 illustrating the effects of gravity as given by sin γavg. The time necessary to reach VE=7.909 km/s for sin γavg=0, 0.5, and 1.0 is 287 s, 306 s, and 316 s, respectively. The two extremes are only 29 s apart and because neither is completely accurate we assume that the middle value, sin γavg=0.5, may be selected as a reasonable estimate for the gravitational effect. The numerical solution also shown in Figure 7.22 ...
