Physical Geology

timer Asked: Mar 27th, 2016

Question description

Draw the “force diagram” (or clearly describe the force diagram) of a satellite that is orbiting the Earth. (You may use the figure on the next page).

Label all forces acting on the satellite with a single arrow (->), and indicate the direction and magnitude of the “net force” with a double arrow (=>).

Knowing that a geostationary satellite orbits above the Earth’s equator at a height of about 22,240 miles, calculate a geostationary satellite’s speed as it orbits around the Earth
