When a satellite is affected by resistance against orbit motion,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

for example from thin atmosphere or solar wind, it will as a result of this decelerates -

but in that process it will decrease slightly toward the earth, and therefore following accelerate too.

How can the new orbit speed be calculated?
