A 7410-kg satellite has an elliptical orbit, as in the figure. The point on the orbit that is farthest from the earth is called the apogee and is at the far right side of the drawing. The point on the orbit that is closest to the earth is called the perigee and is at the far left side of the drawing. Suppose that the speed of the satellite is 2840 m/s at the apogee and 8050 m/s at the perigee.
