1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A orbiting satellite stays over a certain spot on the equator of (rotating) Mercury. What is the altitude of the orbit (called a "synchronous orbit")? Mercury mass = 3.3022 e23 kg Mercury Radius = 2439.7 km 2. Relevant equations [tex]T^2[/tex] = (4[tex]\Pi^2[/tex]/GM) * r^3 and that's all I can think of which is why I'm stuck 3. The attempt at a solution I'm sorry that I have no attempt, I'm really lost on this one and would greatly appreciate any help!
