Question

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 to orbit one time by using the circumference of the orbit and the velocity.

Answer #1

Two satellites are in circular orbits around the earth. The
orbit for satellite A is at a height of 406 km above the earth's
surface, while that for satellite B is at a height of 904 km. Find
the orbital speed for satellite A and satellite B.

A satellite is in a circular orbit around Earth with an altitude
equal to 2.50 times Earth's radius. What is the magnitude of the
centripetal acceleration of this satellite? [Hint: you do not need
to look up Earth's mass or radius to solve this one.]
can you solve this?

Two identical earth satellites, A and B, are to be launched into
circular orbits about Earth's center. Satellite A is to orbit at an
altitude of 5290 km. Satellite B is to orbit at an altitude of
22500 km. The radius of Earth is 6400 km.
a) What is the ratio of the mechanical energy of satellite A to
that of satellite B, in orbit?
b)What is the ratio of the angular speed of satellite B to that
of satellite...

A satellite is in a circular orbit around the Earth at an
altitude of 3.84 106 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.)

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)
