Altitude of Satellites above the Surface of the Earth

Same period as the period of the Earth is correct, but what is 24 86400 seconds?

You do not need a mobile to understand this. Take your girlfriend instead, draw a circle in the ground, and have fun.
Sorry, I was going to write 24 hours, but I realize that I need to use the SI unit for time to save me a lot of conversions and prevent me from making mistakes. I forgot to delete it.

This sounds so good at the moment. The weather is very cold where I live. Unfortunately, she lives away from me. She goes to a different college.Next year, I will be going to the college that she currently attends to finish my physics degree.
Thank you everyone for your help. You guys are amazing. I love how you don't just give us the answer, you direct us to the right path.
