## Homework Statement

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?

## Homework Equations

v=rw

## 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

=4
