Consider problem U concerning the geosynchronous satellite of mass 50 kg. It orbits at a radius of 42,300 km with a speed of 3076 m/s. a) How much energy is needed to lift the satellite from the earth's surface (Re=6,370 km) up to that radius? b) How much kinetic energy does the satellite have as it orbits?Consider problem U concerning the geosynchronous satellite of mass 50 kg.
