No idea how to do this honestly, but here it is. Hopefully someone can just work this out and I can learn from that. Calculate the velocity needed to place a 14.5kg item (its a turkey but whatever lol) into orbit around the Earth at an elevation of 100km. The radius of the Earth is 6500km. Like I said I'm not sure to how to do this and I need to know.

2. Relevant equations

I was given formulas ( These might have nothing to do with it, beware) Fc=mu^{2}/r

ac=4pi^{2}rf^{2}
