A satellite orbits at a distance from the Earth's center of about 4.40 Earth radii and takes 13.0 hours to go around once. What distance (in meters) does the satellite travel in one day?

  • physics - ,

    One day is 24/13 = 1.8462 revolutions.

    Multiply that by 2 pi * R, where

    R = 4.4 Earth radii.

    The Earth's radius is about 6370 km. Look it up to make sure.
