A satellite circles the earth in an orbit whose radius is 1.90 times the earth's radius. The earth's mass is 5.98 x 10^{24} kg, and its radius is 6.38 x 10^{6} m. What is the period of the satellite?

Step 1

Given data:

Let the radius of the satellite, R = 1.90 x (6.38 x 10^{6} ) = 12.122 x 10^{6} m

Mass of the earth, M_{e} = 5.98 x 10^{24} kg

Step 2

For the satellite:

Step 3
