1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data 2. Relevant equations F = G(m1m2/r2) 3. The attempt at a solution Well the height of Mt. Everest is 8,848 m. And I'm guessing the no atmosphere and not turning on an axis is just to setup the ideal problem. But from there I dont know how to set up the equation so that the satellite is placed into orbit.
