Question

Space X recently launched Starlink satellites in an orbit of radius 6850 km. How fast will the satellites be moving in the orbit? Express your answer in m/s.

Mass of the earth = 5.97 x 10^24 kg

1 km = 1,000 m.

Answer #1

How fast is a satellite moving if it is in a circular orbit
whose radius is 22000 km? G = 6.67 x 10-11 Nm2/kg2, and the mass of
the earth is 5.98 x 1024 kg.

Two
Earth satellites, A and B, each of mass m, are to be launched into
circular orbits about Earth's center. Satellite A is to orbit at an
altitude of 5230 km. Satellite B is to orbit at an altitude of
24400 km. The radius of Earth REis 6370 km. (a) What is the ratio
of the potential energy of satellite B to that of satellite A, in
orbit? (b) What is the ratio of the kinetic energy of satellite B...

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 sattelite is rotatin in a circular orbit with radius r = 1000
km aroud earth. The mass of the sattelite is m = 1000 kg. The mass
of earth is M = 6 x 10^24 kg.
a) What is the velocity of the sattelite?
b) The engine of the sattelite is turned on and it changes its
orbit to a new orbit with radius r = 500 km. How much work (W=?)
should the engine do for this change...

The Hubble Space Telescope orbits the Earth at an altitude of
about 350 miles (570 km). The Earth has a radius of about 3950
miles (6350 km). The gravitational constant is G = 6.674 x 10-11
m3/kg/s2. The telescope has a mass of 11,110 kg. The Earth has a
mass of 5.97 x 1024 kg. (Hint: Convert all distances to meters
first.)
a) What is the force of gravity on the telescope? b) How fast is
the telescope orbiting around...

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.)

The mass of a meteor with a radius of 1 km is about 9 x 1012 kg.
The mass of a meteor also is proportional to the cube of its
radius. Suppose a meteor with a radius of 8.5 km is moving at 2.0 x
104 m/s when it collides inelastically with the Earth. The Earth
has a mass of 5.97 x 1024 kg and assume the Earth is stationary.
The kinetic energy lost by the asteroid in this collision...

The mass of a meteor with a radius of 1 km is about 9 x 1012 kg.
The mass of a meteor also is proportional to the cube of its
radius. Suppose a meteor with a radius of 11.4 km is moving at 1.8
x 104 m/s when it collides inelastically with the Earth. The Earth
has a mass of 5.97 x 1024 kg and assume the Earth is stationary.

The mass of a meteor with a radius of 1 km is about 9 x 10^12
kg. The mass of a meteor also is proportional to the cube of its
radius. Suppose a meteor with a radius of 11.6 km is moving at 1.6
x 10^4 m/s when it collides inelastically with the Earth. The Earth
has a mass of 5.97 x 10^24kg and assume the Earth is stationary.
The kinetic energy lost by the asteroid in this collision will...

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?
