Radius of earth 3,959 miles
Space shuttle orbits 200 miles above earths
Surface
Space shuttle completes 220 degrees of a
Revolution around earth in one day
What is the average speed of the space
Shuttle

angular speed=angle/time
convert 220 degrees to radians..
Angle=220/360 ( 2PI)
solve for angular speed.
linear speed=angular speed* (3959+220)
