1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Two identical satellites orbit the earth in stable orbits. One satellite orbits with a speed v at a distance r from the center of the earth. The second satellite travels at a speed that is less than v . At what distance from the center of the earth does the second satellite orbit? 2. Relevant equations a = (v)^2/r F = m/a F = G (M * m )/ r^2 3. The attempt at a solution I'm really confused on how to manipulate these equations. Ultimately, I need to find an equation that relates "r" to "v." r = a * v^2 So if the second satellite is moving slower doesn't that mean "r" has to be bigger? This makes me think of one of Kepler's Laws.
