physics

Two Earth satellites, A and B, each of mass m, are to be launched into circular orbits about Earth's center. Satellite A is to orbit at an altitude of 7460 km. Satellite B is to orbit at an altitude of 20500 km. The radius of Earth REis 6370 km. (a) What is the ratio of the potential energy of satellite B to that of satellite A, in orbit? (b) What is the ratio of the kinetic energy of satellite B to that of satellite A, in orbit? (c) Which satellite (answer A or B) has the greater total energy if each has a mass of 11.4 kg? (d) By how much?
