Orbital Maneuver
Subject: Physics | Topics:

In astronautics, the Oberth effect is where the use of a rocket engine when travelling from high speed generates additional useful energy when compared with one at lower speed. Oberth effect occurs for the reason that propellant has a lot more usable energy and as it happens that the vehicle will able to use kinetic energy to create mechanical electric power. In spaceflight, an orbital maneuver is the use of propulsion systems to the orbit of an spacecraft.
