First you need to look up or compute the radial distance of the satellite from the center of the earth. It is about 41,000 km. Then you need to provide not only the larger potential energy to get the satellite that high up, but also provide enough kinetic energy in the ...

The plane of every orbit must pass through the center of the earth, because the gravity force acts from there. You can have 24-hour orbits that are not coplanar with the equatorial plane, but the satellite would drift back and forth across the equatorial plane. From a point on...

A satellite is in orbit about Earth. Its orbital radius is 7.51×107 m. The mass of the satellite is 5415 kg and the mass of Earth is 5.974×1024 kg. Determine the orbital speed of the satellite in mi/s. 1 mi/s = 1609 m/s.

**Physics - Satellite Motion**

First get the distance R from the center of the Earth GM/R^2 = V^2/R Period: P = (1/14.1)*24 hours*3600 s/h = 6128 s 2 pi*R/P = V Solve the two independent equations for V and R. Once you have R, subtract the radius of the Earth for altitude.
