Would you agree with the calculation reagarding the speed of an artificial satelite, v = 3 x 10^4 m/s, assuming that it is travelling at an altitude h = 230 km above the earths surface where g = 9.0 m/s^2. ?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The radius of the earth is 6370 km.

Also, how long would it take for the satelite to complete one revolution?

not sure where to start here.. any help would be great
