What is the total mechanical energy of a 290 kg satellite in a geosynchronous orbit around the Earth?
W= K + UG where K= 1/2 (mv2) and UG= -(GmM)/r
Fc= mac where ac= v2/r
The Attempt at a Solution
I think the geosynchronous part is what is throwing me off. What would the radius be so I can solve for the initial speed.
