altitude of 3.78 106 m.(Hint: Solve the parts in reverse order.)
(a) Find the period of the orbit. h (b) Find the speed of the
satellite. (c) Find the acceleration of the satellite. m/s2 toward
the center of the earth

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.

A satellite is in a circular orbit around the Earth at an
altitude of 1.66 106 m. (a) Find the period of the orbit (in hrs).
(Hint: Modify Kepler's third law: T2 = (4π2/GMS)r3 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.) (b) Find the speed of the satellite (in km/s). (c)
Find the acceleration of...

the satellite on the Earth?

A satellite is launched to orbit the Earth at an altitude of
2.20 * 10^7 m for use in the Global Positioning system (GPS). Take
the mass of the Earth to be 5.97 * 10^24 kg and its radius 6.38 *
10^6 m. (a) What is the orbital period of this GPS satellite? (b)
With what speed does it orbit the Earth?

A 969-kg satellite orbits the Earth at a constant altitude of
103-km.
(a) How much energy must be added to the system to move the
satellite into a circular orbit with altitude 208 km?
(b) What is the change in the system's kinetic energy?
(c) What is the change in the system's potential energy?
