What is the centripetal acceleration of a satellite orbiting Saturn at the location exactly on Saturn radius above the surface of Saturn

  • Physics - centripetal acceleration - , Sunday, October 31, 2010 at 10:11pm

    R = 2r

    m v^2/R = G m M /R^2
    so
    v^2/R = Ac = G M/(4r^2)

    where M is Saturn mass
    r is Saturn radius
    G is gravitational constant
