Low Earth orbiting satellites orbit between 200 and 500 miles above Earth. In order to keep the satellites at a constant distance from Earth, they must maintain a speed of 17,000 miles per hour. Assume Earth's radius is 3960 miles.

a. Find the angular velocity needed to maintain a LEO satellite at 200 miles above earth.

b. How far above Earth is a LEO with a angular velocity of 4 radians per hour?

c. Describe the angular velocity of any LEO satellite.
