An artificial satellite circling the Earth completes each orbit in 122 minutes.

(a) Find the altitude of the satellite. (b) What is the value of g at the location of this satellite?

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

R = [T^2GMe/4*3.14^2]*333 where T is period in seconds and pie=3.14. R=8.15E6 m a) H = R - Re = 1.77E6 m b) g = GMe/R^2 = 6.005 m / s^2
