**Please help asap!! Orbital speed**

**1. Homework Statement**

A satellite is placed in orbit 5.19x105m above the surface of Jupiter. Jupiter has a mass of 1.90x1027kg and a radius of 7.14x107m. Find the orbital speed of the satellite.

Answer = m/s

**2. Homework Equations**

v = sqrt [GM/r]

= (5.19 * 10^5)(1.90*10^27)/ (7.14*10^7+5.19*10^5) = 3.703 *10^12 is wrong!!!
