How does the trajectory vary between the two types of missions? Specifically, how does the speed and velocity vary for the booster for a Falcon 9 mission?

    $\begingroup$ Check flightclub.io which has profiles for previous SpaceX flights (iirc the author corrects them by matching the telemetry data from webcast) together with estimated profiles for some upcoming missions. $\endgroup$

$Q2E \cdot \frac{VqE2}{Mass} \cdot \frac{thrust ratio}{V_e}$ on slow line exit to HEO to exit Ve to Max thrust to shut down and IqU2EvVe Is Pion Start up Pq2ExW/Mass to LqM x Ve = Tqr Thrust mass QVe to transition.

    $\begingroup$ The site supports Latex formatting. I made a partial conversion of your formulas into latex, but I was incapable to decode, what you wanted to write. So if you know latex, please do the rest. Your formulas are probably incomprehensible for the readers in their current form. $\endgroup$
