Abstract

A  spacecraft carrying two astronauts executes a circular orbit with a constant angular velocity. The centre of the circular orbit is the centre of the Earth. One astronaut throws a tiny tool towards the other. Motion of the tiny tool relative to the rotating spacecraft, ie, as observed by the astronauts is dealt with so as to determine its velocity , range and trajectory.
