The Earth’s radius is about 6380 km. The space shuttle is orbiting about 275.0 km above Earth’s surface.
If the average speed of the space shuttle is 23500 km/h, find the time required for it to circle Earth.

  • physics -

    time=distance/velocity

    =(6380+275)km*2PI/(23500km/hr)= about 1.8 hours
