Question

the period of an earth satellite depends on the
satellite’s

A) mass

B) weight on earth

C) radial distance from earth

D) all of the above

E) none of the above

Answer #1

**The period of an earth satellite is given
by**

**T^2 = 4pi^2*R^3/(G*M)**

**R is the distance from the center of the Earth to the
satellite and **

**M is mass of the Earth **

**so the period of an Earth satellite depends on
satellites radial distance from Earth**

**anaswer is option C**

**it does not depend on mass of satellite no mass term in
the formula it only depends on mass of Earth**

**weight on the earth also not the answer so**

**form the formula it is clear that the answer is option
C**

A satellite (mass m) is in circular orbit around Earth
(mass M) with orbital period T. What is the
satellite’s distance r from the Earth’s center?
Group of answer choices

Consider a satellite of mass m in a circular orbit of radius r
around the Earth of mass ME and radius RE.
1.
What is the gravitational force (magnitude and direction) on
the satellite from Earth?
2.
If we define g(r) to be the force of gravity on a mass m at a
radial distance r from the center of the Earth, divided by the mass
m, then evaluate the ratio g(r)/g(RE)to see how g varies with
radial distance. If...

QUESTION 1
Part 1
Engineers wish to launch a satellite from the surface of the
Moon. What is the minimum speed the satellite must have to escape
the Moon’s gravity – that is, what is the escape velocity at the
surface of the Moon? The Moon has a mass of 7.3x10^22 kg and a
radius of 1.7x10^6 m.
a.
1700 m/s
b.
5.7x10^6 m/s
c.
It depends on the mass of the satellite.
d.
2400 m/s
Part 2
The satellite...

Satellite A has a mass of 1200 \(\rm kg\) and satellite B has a
mass of 1300 \(\rm kg\).When each satellite orbits at one Earth
radius above the surface of the Earth, will the period of satellite
B be longer, shorter or the same as the period of satellite A?

A satellite moves in a circular orbit around the Earth. If the
mass of the satellite increased four times, how will its orbiting
speed be affected?
a. the orbiting speed will quadruple
b. the orbiting speed will decrease too half
c. the orbiting speed will double
d. none of the given answers is correct
e. the orbiting speed will not be affected

A satellite of mass 5520 kg orbits the Earth and has a period of
6700 s . A) Determine the radius of its circular orbit. B)
Determine the magnitude of the Earth's gravitational force on the
satellite. C) Determine the altitude of the satellite.

A satellite of mass 5490 kg orbits the Earth and has a period of
6660 s . a) Determine the radius of its circular orbit. b)
Determine the magnitude of the Earth's gravitational force on the
satellite c) Determine the altitude of the satellite.

two satellites are in orbit about the earth. Satellite A is at
a distance of 200 miles above the surface and satellite B is at a
distance of 400 miles above the surface. which satellite will have
the longer period?
A. Satellite A
B. They will both have the same period
C. Satellite B

A satellite of mass m is in an elliptical orbit around the
Earth, which has mass Me and radius
Re. The orbit varies from closest approach of
distance a at point A to maximum distance of
b from the center of the Earth at point B. At
point A, the speed of the satellite is
v0. Assume that the gravitational potential
energy Ug = 0 when masses are an infinite distance
apart. Express your answers in terms of some or...

A satellite of mass 5530 kg orbits the Earth and has a period of
6680 s . Part A Determine the radius of its circular orbit. Part B
Determine the magnitude of the Earth's gravitational force on the
satellite.
