An artificial satellite circles the Earth in a circular orbit at a location where the acceleration due to gravity is 8.26 m/s2. Determine the orbital period of the satellite.

  • Physics - ,

    v^2/r = 8.26

    F/m = local g = G M/r^2 = 8.26

    6.67*10^-11 * Mass earth/r^2 = 8.26
    solve that for r

    then
    v^2 = 8.26 r
    solve for v

    v T = 2 pi r
    T = 2 pi r/v
