i solved it. thanks to all who responded
Can you show how you got that answer?nick727kcin said:a.)Consider a 1000 kg communication satellite that needs to be boosted from an orbit 300 km above the Earth to a geosynchronous orbit 35,900 km above the earth. Find the velocity v_1 on the lower circular orbit.
this came out to be: 7730m/s
nick727kcin said:thanks for responding guys, and i got that answer by using this formula:
v= (sq. root) GM/(Re+h)
part a is definitely right, though
