**Find the satellite's altitude above the earth's surface**.

We know that the gravitational potential energy is U = -(GMeM)/r, and it is given to be -1.49 x 10 ^11.

We also know the gravitational force to be Fg = (GMeM)/r^2

I am not sure, but can we set the two equations equal to each other and solve for r
