b) how does the altitude of this geosynchronous satellite compare to the average 354 km altitude of the International Space Station?

c) Calculate the orbital period of the international Space Station (assume circular Orbit)

this was my attempt

a= (mu*(1/(2pi))^2)^(1/3)

a= (398600(1/(2pi))^2)^(1/3)

a=21.6

but for b) im not sure if my prof. wants a word explanation or to solve the actual difference so i provided a word explination

then for c)

T = ((2\pi)/(mu)a^(3/2))^(1/3)

but am unsure what mu would be.

i'm not sure if what i'm doing is correct because we never went over this in class so i tried do this based off internet research. any help would be appreciated
