1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

The Sun rotates approximately every 26 days. What is the radius of a "heliosynchronous" orbit, that is an orbit that stays in the same spot of the sun.

2. Relevant equations

r = ((GMT^2)/(4pi^2))^1/3

The suns mass is 1.99 X 10^30

Time = seconds

G = 6.67 X 10^-11

3. The attempt at a solution

I'm not sure really except that I know how to find the radius but I'm not sure if its asking the same thing.
