1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data I am working on a report dealing with the velocity and acceleration of objects in Earth's surface based on distance from the Earth and thus far I have used the orbital speed equation and the acceleration equation. To get dive deeper into the math I would like to attempt to calculate the distance of these objects based on observations from Earth's surface. I have yet to fine something on the internet. 2. Relevant equations v = SQRT(G*M/R) a = G*M/R^2 3. The attempt at a solution I have figured that there is likely a trigonometric solution.
