The atmosphere on Mars is almost all carbon dioxide (CO2), and has a pressure of about 6.9×102 Pa, much less than that of Earth. At −22°C (a warm day on Mars), what is the mass of one cubic meter of the atmosphere? (Assume the atmosphere is completely CO2.) I ...

A satellite has a mass of kg orbits the Earth in a circular path with radius 1.0e^7m. What is the period of the satellite? I think I already posted this but I am still confused. My teacher said to use T= 2(pi)r^3/2 / sqrt GmE So I just plugged the numbers in T= 2(pi)(1.oe^7)^3...

T=2•π•R•sqrt(R/Gm) the gravitational constant G =6.67•10^-11 N•m²/kg², Earth’s mass is M = 5.97•10^24 kg, Earth’s radius is R = 6.378•10^6 m

A satellite of mass 500kg orbits the Earth in a circular path with radius 1.0e^7 m . 1) What is the period of the satellite? I know that the equation is T= 2(pi)r^3/2 / sqrt GmE mE = 5.98e^24 does G = 6.67e^-11 ??
