**tchrwill**, Thursday, October 13, 2011 at 10:33amThe actual velocity of a satellite orbiting at 860 miles altitude is 24,113 fps.

The period derives from

T = 2(Pi)sqrt(r^3/µ) = 113.3 minutes.

The actual velocity of a satellite orbiting at 1700 miles altitude is 21,705 fps.

The period derives from

T = 2(Pi)sqrt(r^3/µ) = 144.18 minutes.

Alternatively,

T2/T1 = sqrt[(r2)^3/(r1)^3]

or T2/T1 =sqrt[5660^3/4820)^3]=1.272489

T2 = 113.3(1.272489) = 144.18
