(HP65) Nonsymmetric Ballastic … Flight Path … Computations
An extract from Nonsymmetric Ballastic Range, Height, TimeofFlight, and Optimal Flight Path Angle Computations with programs for a HewlettPackard Calculator., Naval Postgraduate School, Report # NPS55Su76031, MAR 1976 (17 pages).
ABSTRACT The purpose of this report is to provide the equations and HP65 Programmable Calculator programs for computing ballastic range, height, timeofflight, and particularly the flight path angle which maximizes ballistic ranges for nonsymmetric launch and target positions. A noatmosphere, nonrotating, spherical Earth is assumed. All of the computational methods are outlined in Section III. Instructions and a sample problem for the HewlettPackard 65 Calculator (HP65) are given in Section IV. This HP65 programs are in Section V, and the development of the ß⒪⒫⒯ procedure is in the Appendix. Familiarity with Newtonian twobody theory is assumed. The HP65 program consists of four magnetic cards … BEST! SlideRule ps: yes, there is a misspelling in the ABSTRACT
