A satellite used in a cellular telephone network has a mass of 2160 kg and is in a circular orbit at a height of 670 km above the surface of the earth.

What is the gravitational force Fgrav on the satellite?

Take the gravitational constant to be = 6.6710−11 N*m^2/kg^2, the mass of the earth to be = 5.971024 kg, and the radius of the Earth to be = 6.38106 m.

Express your answer in newtons.
