# How much delta v Do you need to orbit kerbin?

## How much delta v Do you need to orbit kerbin?

Assumption: It takes roughly 2500 m/s of u0394v to escape Kerbin’s atmosphere before vacuum u0394v values take over for the stage powering the transition (actual value ranges between 2000 m/s and 3400 m/s depending on ascent). Note that, as of KSP 1.3. 1, around 3800 m/s of u0394v is required to reach an 80km orbit from the KSC.

## What is low kerbin orbit?

Low Kerbin orbit (LKO) In analogy to the real world low Earth orbit (LEO) a LKO describes a stable low orbit around Kerbin that can be achieved with relatively low cost of Delta-V. The lowest point of an LKO must not be lower than 70 km in order to stay clear of atmospheric drag.

## How small is kerbin compared to Earth?

Kerbin is about 10.9 times smaller than Planet Earth. It does seem equally appropriate, however, because our Kerbals are very small creatures.

## Does kerbin have the same gravity as Earth?

Since they have the same gravtity (9.8m/s^2) they have the same mass. Kerbin is just way denser than Earth.

## How much Delta-V does it take to orbit Earth?

## What is orbital velocity of kerbin?

You will need at least 2000ms Delta-V for the orbit and return, you can test this by seeing if your lander is **almost** capable of reaching Kerbin orbit by itself.

## How much Delta-V does it take to get from Duna to kerbin?

Specifications. Recommended Delta-V: ~ 6,500 for Orbit and Return. ~ 7,500 for Landing and Return.

## What is the lowest kerbin orbit?

Apoapsis and periapsis The periapsis is the lowest point of the orbit and is helpful to determine if the orbit is high enough to avoid collisions with the surface or interaction with an atmosphere.

roughly 4500 m/s

## How high is space around kerbin?

Somewhere in the 69-70km region.

## How large is kerbin compared to Earth?

Real-world comparison Kerbin has approximately 1/113the the mass and a 1/10the the radius of Earth.

## Why is kerbin so small?

Kerbin was made before there timewarp was implemented, its smaller size allows 30 minute orbits compared to the 90 minute ones for an Earth-like planet. Most everything else was scaled from there.

## How big is kerbin km?

Nope. Kerbin is insanely small. Its equatorial radius is precisely 600 kilometers

## What is the gravity on kerbin?

Kerbin is about 10.9 times smaller than Planet Earth. It does seem equally appropriate, however, because our Kerbals are very small creatures. Another thing that I never put too much thought into was the size of the capsules and rockets we get as stock with the game… They have a diameter of only one meter.

## Is kerbin the same size as Earth?

Kerbin was made before there timewarp was implemented, its smaller size allows 30 minute orbits compared to the 90 minute ones for an Earth-like planet. Most everything else was scaled from there.

## How much delta-v Do you need to orbit Earth?

Q: What is the delta-v required to escape Earth’s gravity? Starting from the surface of the Earth, we need a change in velocityu2014a delta-vu2014of 11.2 kilometers per second to escape Earth’s gravity well.

## How do you calculate delta-v for orbit?

It is straightforward to calculate the required delta-v in both burn: u0394 v 1 x3d 3.09 km / s Delta v_1 x3d 3.09 text{km}/text{s} u0394v1x3d3.09 km/s. u0394 v 2 x3d 0.82 km / s Delta v_2 x3d 0.82 text{km}/text{s} u0394v2x3d0.82 km/s

3,9 km/s

7.8 km/s

## What is high kerbin orbit?

Assumption: It takes roughly 2500 m/s of u0394v to escape Kerbin’s atmosphere before vacuum u0394v values take over for the stage powering the transition (actual value ranges between 2000 m/s and 3400 m/s depending on ascent). Note that, as of KSP 1.3. 1, around 3800 m/s of u0394v is required to reach an 80km orbit from the KSC.

## How much Delta V does it take to get from Duna to kerbin?

High Kerbin orbit (HKO) In analogy to the real world high Earth orbit (HEO) a HKO describes a stable high orbit around Kerbin. The altitude of a HKO typically is higher than the KEO (2863.33 km).

roughly 1700 m/s
