The physics of satellite motion around Jupiter.

A satellite of mass 2.00 x 104 kg is placed in orbit 6.00 x 105 m above the surface of
Jupiter. Please refer to the data table for planetary motion included in this lesson.

a) Determine the force of gravitational attraction between the satellite and Jupiter.
b) What must be the orbital speed of the satellite?
c) What must be the value of the gravitational field constant, g, at the location of the satellite?
d) One of the moons of Jupiter is Europa. Its period of motion is 3.07 x 10^5 s.
What must be the radius of its orbit?
e) If a satellite was placed in orbit around Europa at a height of 100.0 km above the surface of Europa, and period of motion was 7.58 x 10^3 s, what must be the mass of Europa? The radius of the moon
Europa is 1.57 x 10^6 m.
