Determine the time it takes for a satellite to orbit the Saturn in a circular "near-Saturn" orbit. A "near-Saturn" orbit is at a height above the surface of the Saturn that is very small compared to the radius of the Saturn. [Hint: You may take the acceleration due to gravity as essentially the same as that on the surface.]
