This problem troubles me since three days and I don´t know a way to solve it:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A satelite is in a circular parking orbit 6.98x10^6m from Earth. To initiate a Hohmann transfer, a rocket gives it an accelerating thrust so that its speed is increased to 8300m/s. How far from the center of Earth will the satelite be when it reaches its apogee?

What I need is the formula(s) so I can do it by myself
