    Proof of satellite revolve around earth in circular path

    Hi guys. I do not know artificial satellite revolve around Earth in a circular path or an ellipse path but do we have physics and mathematical proof that artificial satellite revolve around Earth in circular/ellipse path?

    Finding New Resistance

    I'm sorry but according to your equation, I don't get the answer which is 1.18cm. By the way, I also don't understand the statement "carbon film on its curve surface" means. Do you mind explaining it?

    Finding New Resistance

    I got it. I thought the increase of L decrease the r to r/1.1. Can I ask another question about resistance? A square carbon film of thickness 5x10^-7m, rho 4x10^-5 ohm m is formed on an insulator rod of diameter 3mm.What is the length of the rod so that the carbon film on its curve surface has...

    Finding New Resistance

    R=rho*l / A I just don't get the part how the length of the wire affects the cross sectional area/radius.

    Finding New Resistance

    A wire has uniform cross sectional and resistance R. Then the wire is pulled so that the length increases by 10%. How to find the new resistance? Assumption: The wire thins uniformly.

    Question about Electric Field Strength and Electric Potential

    Lets say I have a point charge X placed on a region between a +Q test charge and +2Q point charge where electric field strength is zero. Since E=-dV/dR, does it mean V=0 or constant? Can the point charge move if i place it there? Well lets just ignore gravitational field/force here.
