1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A satellite with a mass of 5.00x10^2 kg is in a circular orbit, whose radius is 2re, around Earth. Then it is moved to a circular orbit with a radius of 3re. e) Calculate the escape velocity for the satellite if it is on Earths surface. 2. Relevant equations Vesc = Sq.root of 2GMp/r 3. The attempt at a solution Vesc = Sq.root of 2(6.67x10^-11)(5.98x10^24)/6.38x10^6 Vesc = Sq.root of 125036363.6 Vesc = 11182.966 m/s Therefore the velocity of the satellite must be > 11182.966 m/s I must of done something wrong because 11000m/s seems way to fast! Plz help. Thanks in advance.
