Question

The
approximate velocity to orbit earth is 7800 m/s. Assume that this
is 200km above the Earth, and that the mass of the orbiting
spacecraft is 30,000 kg. How many joules of fuel energy would the
spacecraft need to start with in order to reach orbit at that
velocity?

Answer #1

A spacecraft of mass 6.00 ? 104 kg is in a circular
orbit at an altitude of 200 km above the Earth's surface. Mission
Control wants to fire the engines so as to put the spacecraft in an
elliptical orbit around the Earth with an apogee of 4.00 ?
104 km. How much energy must be used from the fuel to
achieve this orbit? (Assume that all of the fuel energy goes into
increasing the orbital energy. This model will...

A satellite orbits the Earth uniformly in a circular orbit with
a velocity of magnitude 4.00 km/s. Use Newton's gravitation force
as the force in Newton's Law of Acceleration, using also the
centripetal acceleration . Solve for radius r of the satellite's
orbit in terms of v . (a) Find then the altitude of the satellite
above the surface of the Earth. Earth's mass and radius are 5.9810
kg and 6.3810 km. (b) Find the time it takes the satellite...

A 160 kg satellite is orbiting on a circular orbit 7655 km above
the Earth's surface. Determine the speed of the satellite. (The
mass of the Earth is 5.97×1024
kg, and the radius of the Earth is 6370 km.)
(in km/s)

A spy drone is in orbit 230 km above the surface of the earth.
If the mass of the earth is 5.98 times 10^24 kg, and the radius of
the earth is 6.38 times 10^6 m, what is the period of orbit of the
drone?

A satellite of mass 180 kg is placed into
Earth orbit at a height of 700 km above the surface.
(a) Assuming a circular orbit, how long does the
satellite take to complete one orbit?
h
(b) What is the satellite's speed?
m/s
(c) Starting from the satellite on the Earth's surface, what is the
minimum energy input necessary to place this satellite in orbit?
Ignore air resistance but include the effect of the planet's daily
rotation.

A satellite is in a circular orbit around the Earth at an
altitude of 3.32 106 m. (a) Find the period of the orbit. (Hint:
Modify Kepler's third law so it is suitable for objects orbiting
the Earth rather than the Sun. The radius of the Earth is 6.38 106
m, and the mass of the Earth is 5.98 1024 kg.) h (b) Find the speed
of the satellite. km/s (c) Find the acceleration of the satellite.
