If an artificial earth satellite is in an orbit around the earth’s
equator with a period of exactly 1 day, how does its motion
look to an observer on the rotating earth if it orbits in the same
direction as the earth turns? (Such an orbit is said to be geosynchronous;
most communications satellites are placed in
geosynchronous orbits.)
