- Homework Statement
- Deduce at what distance from the center of the Earth are positioned the geostationary satellites which, observed from the terrestrial frame of reference, are motionless in the sky.

- Relevant Equations
- T = 2piR / v

Hi,

They gave me this formula T = 2piR / v, with T the revolution period of the satellite, R the distance between the center of masses and v the velocity.

They gave me the value of G and the eath's mass and asked to determine the value of R.

I don't even see fromwhere I should start...

Thank you for your help!
