Crutchik Faculty of Engineering Tel-Aviv University Tel-Aviv , Israel J. AppelbaumJf National Aeronautics and Space Administration Lewis Research Center, Cleveland, OH Abstract A tent-shaped structure with a flexible photovoltaic blanket acting as a catenary collector is presented. 25 rows  The book contains fundamentals of solar radiation, its ecological impacts, .   The catenary, described by y = cosh x, is the curve that ropes or other flexible materials naturally fall into between two supports. This curve was mistaken for the parabola (y = x2) until the difference was cleared up by 17th-century mathematicians.

solar radiation, show how much solar radiation is re­ ceived by a horizontal surface such as a solar pond. Maximum yearly solar radiation can be achieved using a tilt angle approximately equal to a site's latitude. To opti­ mize performance in the winter, the collector can be tilted 15° greater than the latitude; to optimize perfor­. For the period , tables provide solar radiation data in units of Btu/ft2/day for five surfaces: a horizontal window and vertical windows facing north, east, south, and west. An estimate of the uncertainty (± %) of the solar radiation data is given in the table headings. The manual includes the solar radiation incident on the outside.

Solve Problem , retaining the effect of solar radiation pressure and adding that of lunar gravity as well. For the orbits of Example , plot the variations a, e, and θ over the same time interval.
