Radio signals travel at a rate of 3x10^8 meters per second.how many seconds would it take for a radio signal to travel from a satellite to the surface of earth if the satellite is orbiting at a height of 3.6x10^7 meters?

A. 8.3 seconds
B. 1.2x10^-1 seconds
C. 1.08x10^16 seconds
D. 10.8x10^15 seconds------

Not sure if im correct can someone check my answer?

  1. No, that's how far it will travel in 3.6x10^7 seconds
    distance = speed * time

    You want the time, so divide distance by speed
    3.6x10^7 / 3x10^8 = 1.2x10^-1

    Note also that if you had been correct with D, that is not scientific notation, since the number must be less than 10. C and D are the sama value, but only C is scientific notation.

    ** these were the correct answers for the test that i took, apologies if it's not correct for your test **

    ** i start giving the letter answers with the word and scientific notation problems, the equations have the answer after the equal sign **

    1) -(5)^-1 = -1/5

    2) (-8.3)^0 = 1

    3) -1/y^-4 = -y^4

    4) 4^6(4^3) = 4^9

    5) (3)^10(3)^-9 = 3

    b) 7.2 x 10^-3
