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...
