The rocket in Example 11.2 has a diameter of 5 m. It is to be launched on a gravity turn trajectory. Pitchover begins at an altitude of 130 m with an initial flight path angle \gamma o of 89.85°. What are the altitude h and speed v of the rocket at burnout \left(t_{b o}=260 s \right)? What are the velocity losses due to drag and gravity (cf. Equations 11.27)?

\Delta v_{D}=\int\limits_{t_{o}}^{t_{f}} \frac{D}{m} d t \quad \Delta v_{G}=\int\limits_{t_{o}}^{t_{f}} g \sin \gamma d t (11.27)
