physics

radius R of the orbit of a geosynchronous satellite that circles the earth. (Note that R is measured from the center of the earth, not the surface.) You may use the following constants:
The universal gravitational constant G is 6.67×10−11N⋅m2/kg2.
The mass of the earth is 5.98×1024kg.
The radius of the earth is 6.38×106m.

T=8.64×10^4 s
