While 2 astronauts were on the surface of the moon, a third astronaut orbited the moon. Assume the orbit to be circular and 100km above the surface of the moon. If the mass and radius of the moon at 7.40x10^22kg and 1.70x10^6m respectively, determine (a) the orbiting astronauts acceleration, (b) his orbital speed, and (c) the period of the orbit
