Student has agreed that all tutoring, explanations, and answers provided by the tutor will be used to help in the learning process and in accordance with Studypool's honor code & terms of service.

Final Answer

peed tangential(v) is = 2π*R/T .... 

T = period = 24 hr... = 86400 s 

v= 2π*6.37 *10^6/ 86400 
v = 4.63 *10 ^ 2 m/s ......... 

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
