1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data What is the total mechanical energy of a 290 kg satellite in a geosynchronous orbit around the Earth? 2. Relevant equations W= K + UG where K= 1/2 (mv2) and UG= -(GmM)/r Fc= mac where ac= v2/r 3. 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.
