A satellite in an elliptical orbit has a speed of 9.00km/s when it is at its closes approach to the Earth(perigee). The satellite is 7.00x10^6 m from the center of the Earth at this time. When the satellite is at its greatest distance from the center of the Earth (apogee), its speed is 3.66km/s. Find the distance from the satellite to the center of the Earth at apogee. (assume any energy losses are negligible.)
