A satellite orbits the earth at a height of 200 KM in a cirlce of radius 6570 km. Find the speed of the satellite and the time taken tocomplete one revolution. Assume teh earth's mass is 6.0 X 10 exp 24.
(Hint: The gravitation force provides the centripetal force)
i found Velocity using:
v = square root of gravity constant * m central / r
but they want the time, what can i use
thanks
