A satellite is in a circular orbit about the earth (ME = 5.98 1024 kg). The period of the satellite is 3.70 104 s. What is the speed at which the satellite travels?

  • Physics - ,

    T=2•π•R•sqrt(R/G•M)
    the gravitational constant G =6.67•10^-11 N•m²/kg²,
    M= 5.985•10^24 kg
    T²=4π²R³/G•M
    Solve for R.

    V=2πR/T
