Keplers 3 Laws

A remote-sensing satellite of earth revolves in a circular orbit at a height of 0.25×106m above the surface of earth. If earth's radius is 6.38×106m and g=9.8ms-2, then the orbital speed of the satellite is


The orbital speed of the satellite is 


where R is the earth's radius, g is the acceleration due to gravity on earth's surface and h is the height above the surface of earth.

 Here, R=6.38×106 m,g=9.8 m s-2and h=0.25×106 m

vo=6.38×106 m9.8 m s-26.38×106 m+0.25×106 m

=7.76×103 m s-1=7.76 km s-1

1 km=103 m
