Two satellites A and B of the same mass are going around the earth in concentric orbits. The distance of satellite B from the earth’s center is four times that of satellite A. What is the ratio of the tangential speed of satellite B to that of satellite A?
The Attempt at a Solution
So if v=rw and B is 4 times the distance of A, wouldn't the ratio (V_B/V_A) just be:
4rw = rw
