Density scale height determined from the motion of Dash 2 satellite

The density scale height H is determined at low as well as high altitude using the equation of change rate of the orbital period of Dash 2 satellite. The computed values of H are compared with these statistical values obtained by Jacchia-Jacchia´s values of H are given up to altitude 2500 km. We extend Jacchia´s values of H up to altitude 3110.7 km since our values of H are computed from altitude …
