Six artificial satellites complete one circular orbit around a space station in the same amount of time. Each satellite has mass m and radius of orbit L. The satellites fire rockets that provide the force needed to maintain a circular orbit around the space station. The gravitational force is negligible. Rank from largest to smallest.
1-m=400kg
L=2500m
2-m=800kg
L=5000m
3-m=100kg
L=2500m
4-m=100kg
L=10000m
5-m=200kg
L=5000m
6-m=300kg
L=7500m
