Two satellites are orbiting the Earth in stable circular orbits. Satellite A has a mass m and is located at a distance 2r from the center of the Earth. Satellite B has a mass 2m and is located at a distance r from the center of the Earth. Which one of the following statements concerning this situation is false?



The mass that a satellite has does not affect its orbital speed


The gravitational force of the Earth acting on satellite B is greater than the Earth's gravitational force acting on satellite A.


The centripetal force on satellite B is eight times greater than the centripetal force on satellite A.


Satellite B has a greater orbital speed than satellite A does.


Satellite A has a greater centripetal acceleration than satellite B does.
