B Potential energy and velocity

  1. Dec 13, 2016 #1
    So a satellite is orbiting an still planet in an eccentric orbit.

    The closest part of the orbit is at 100 km and the farthest part at 200 km.

    At 200 km its speed would be 1m/s

    What would be its speed at 100 km distance from the planet?
