I'm doing a basic analysis of the trip to the Moon.
I've estimated the speed as follows:
distance: 363,104,000 m time: 4 days, 6 hours, 45 minutes = 369,900 s average speed: 363,104,000 m / 369,900 s ~ 982 m/s
- How much fuel was used to decelerate the CSML at the moon.
- How well does this speed estimate compare to the actual velocity of the CSML as it approached the Moon?
