Homework Help: PHYSICS(HELP)

A satellite with a mass of ms = 7.00 103 kg is in a planet's equatorial plane in a circular "synchronous" orbit. This means that an observer at the equator will see the satellite being stationary overhead (see figure below). The planet has mass mp = 8.59 1025 kg and a day of length T = 1.1 earth days (1 earth day = 24 hours).


(a) How far from the center (in m) of the planet is the satellite?


(b) What is the escape velocity (in km/sec) of any object that is at the same distance from the center of the planet that you calculated in (a)?
