# Calculate minimum change in velocity with apogee of 236 and perigee of 205?

<p>Calculate the minimum change in velocity (delta V or ∆V) required for the Space Shuttle to decrease its altitude to 60 miles if it’sorbiting with an apogee of 236 miles and a perigee of 205 miles above the surface of Earth.<br />Use the rule of thumb that below an altitude of 500 miles, forevery 2 feet per second (fps) change in the orbiting space craft’s velocity its altitude will change by 1 mile.</p>
