Assignments must be handed in at the beginning of class
Assignment 1: Assigned: Jan. 16, Due: Jan. 24Prob. 1.1
Prob. 1.3 (change the frequency to 2100 MHz) Prob. 1.7 (change planets to Venus and Uranus) Prob. 1.11 (change the payload to 800 kg) Prob. 5: While visiting Yellowknife, you see a coronal aurora (see example figure, right), i.e. an aurora that originates from directly overhead and streaks down at all azimuthal angles. If the specific intensity of the aurora can be approximated by the function: Iν=I_{ν0}cos(θ),where θ is the zenith angle which extends to a maximum of 45 degrees, find a simple expression for the flux density of the aurora in terms of I_{ν0}.
