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.
1m=400kg
L=2500m
