A spy satellite is in circular orbit around Earth. It makes one revolution in 6.01 hours.
how high above earth?
acceleration?

    change time to seconds for the period.

    v=2PI h/period
    v^2=(2PI)^2/period^2

    v^2/r= 9.8*(re^2/r^2) where r is the orbital radius.

    solve for r, then altitude is r-re.
