Homework Help: Exploring Space

Posted by Sara on Monday, March 15, 2010 at 7:25pm.

if a satellite were to be launched with too little speed or too much speed then what would happen?

If a sattellite were to be launched with too much speed then the friction in the air would make it heat up to the point where it would burn up. Earth's gravity wouldn't be strong enough to keep it in orbit, so it could escape. If a sattellite were to be launched with too little speed, then it would become to slow to orbit around earth.

Any other information would be greatly appreciated, and please tell me if my looks correct, thank you in advance:-)
