A 602 kg geosynchronous satellite or-

bits a planet similar to Earth at a radius

1.98 × 105 km from the planet’s center. Its

angular speed at this radius is the same as the

rotational speed of the Earth, and so they ap-

pear stationary in the sky. That is, the period

of the satellite is 24 h .

What is the force acting on this satellite?

Answer in units of N

011 (part 2 of 2) 10.0 points

What is the mass of this planet?

Answer in units of kg
