If the space station orbits the earth 225 km above the surface , what are the satellites orbital speed and period ? The mass of the earth is 5.97 E24 kg and the radius is 6.38 E6 m.
The Attempt at a Solution
I already have the speed ( v ) , I just don't understand how to find the orbital period
Te^2/ Re^3 = Ts^2/ Rs^3
I know the earths radius and orbital, but do I put the t in hours or seconds ?
How do I find the satellites radius ?
If anyone could help it would be appreciated.
