A satellite has a mass of 94 kg and is located at 1.96 106 m above the surface of Earth.

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

DATA:

mass = 94kg

height= 1.96106m

potential energy=?

magnitude of gravitational force=?

SOLUTION:

a)POTENTIAL ENERGYP.E=mgh

= (94) (9.8) (1.96106)

= 1.8065 J

b) GRAVITATIONAL FORCE

F=GMm/r^{2}

F= (6.67*10^{-11})(5.97*10^{24})(94)/(6.38*10^{6})^{2}

F= 9.1958N

not correct

which one???

both

i did the math by the data you have provided me. now you have both formula you can check by yourself
