I have a satellite orbiting at a velocity of 3850Km/hr around planet earth in a circular orbit, please help me in calculating it's height of orbit. I do know that the closer a satellite is, the faster it's orbital velocity, and the farther it is the slower it would be, and help me with the formulas?

Can you calculate the force on the satellite? Do you know how to calculate the acceleration in a circular orbit?
