6-3, and N is the distance to the ellipse (two parts of N are shown in the figure). Note that N occurs in almost all of the geodesy calculations that we will use. The formula for N is more easily (and instructively) found from the following simple argument than from an algebraically messy application of the standard formula for the radius of curvature. 6-9) where N is needed for coordinate calculations and is useful for calculating velocity components. Using the constant-latitude circle we find that the geographic system East component of velocity over Earth, vE , is related to longitude rate by .

Jz − Jx ) RP m + Jy Jy . 7-8) 38 THE KINEMATICS AND DYNAMICS OF AIRCRAFT MOTION and the double-subscript notation on the moments of inertia has been dropped. The equations involve cyclic permutation of the rate and inertia components; they are inherently coupled because angular rates about any two axes produce an angular acceleration about the third. This inertia coupling has important consequences for aircraft maneuvering rapidly at high angles of attack; we examine its effects in Chapter 4. 7-3.

The Earth-centered 26 THE KINEMATICS AND DYNAMICS OF AIRCRAFT MOTION inertial (ECI) system is fixed in the inertial frame, and defined in the same way as ECEF, except that its x-axis is always parallel to a line from the Sun’s cm to Earth’s position in orbit at the vernal equinox. Terrestrial longitude, ????, and celestial longitude, ????, are shown in the figure, measured easterly from the appropriate x-axis to the projection of the position vector on the equatorial plane. In a given time interval, an increment in celestial longitude is equal to the increment in terrestrial longitude plus the increment in Earth’s rotation angle.
