The paper determines the parameters of the gas flow from a 5 gm thrust propane attitude control jet and investigates the physical condition of the exhaust gas in a satellites environment. Theoretical investigations show that the propane gas has negligible effect on the attitude sensing systems of a satellite or on the optical systems of probable scientific experiments in a satellite.
