(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

you are in charge of placing a satellite of mass 5130kg into an orbit around the planet Jupiter. The orbit has an altitude of 3.59E+5m.

What is the orbital velocity of the satellite?

2. Relevant equations

Velocity = square root (G * m/r)

3. The attempt at a solution

Velocity = square root (6.67e-11 * 5130/3.59e+5)

V = 9.76e-7 which is Incorrect.

Any Help would be much appreciated!!!!!
