**drwls**, Wednesday, October 13, 2010 at 12:58amThe angular velocity is V/R. The length units of V and R must be the same.. let's say meters.

Therefore

angular velocity = (9000 m/s)/6.5*10^6 m

= 1.38*10^-3 radians/s

That satellite is a rather low one, since the Earth's radius is 6378 m, only 122 km (75 miles) less than the orbit radius. Satellites do not last long in such low orbits.
