a satellite completes one revolution of a planet in almost exactly one hour. at the end of an hour , the satellite has traveled 2.0x10^7 meters and is only 10 meters away from its starting point. What is the numerical value of the satellite's average velocity after that one hour?

The trick here is to recognize that they are asking for average velocity, not speed. In exactly one hour, it is only 10 meters from where is was 3600 seconds ago. Compute the ratio, 10 m/3600 s

post it.
