Homework Help: Math WORD PROBLEM

Posted by Ty on Wednesday, October 12, 2011 at 8:49pm.

The time in hours it takes a satellite to complete an orbit around the earth varies directly as the radius of the orbit (from the center of the earth) and inversely as the orbital velocity. If a satellite completes an orbit 860 miles above the earth in 12 hours at a velocity of 34,000 mph, how long would it take a satellite to complete an orbit if it is at 1700 miles above the earth at a velocity of 27,000 mph? (Use 3960 miles as the radius of the earth.)
