A 1500 kg satellite is orbiting planet earth. The period is 86400 seconds and the radius is 42200000 meters. To determine the magnitude of attractive force..... you use equation F=GM(sat)M(Earth)/R2. I know that the mass of earth is 6.0*10(exp)7 kg and the gravitational constant is 6.67*10(exp negative 11) N*m2/kg2. My answer comes out to be 3.37 *10(exp)32, which is not one of my options?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
