## Homework Statement

I have derived the expression for the velocity of the satellite v= root of GM/r however I'm struggling to derive an expression for the centripetal acceleration of a satellite orbiting Earth.

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

I'm not entirely sure which equations to relate or equate. To find the velocity I equated the force between two masses and the centripetal force and rearranged.
