A satellite orbits the Earth in an elliptical orbit. At perigee its distance from the center of the Earth is 22500 km and its speed is 4280 m/s. At apogee its distance from the center of the Earth is 24100 km and its speed is 3990 m/s.


Q: Question 20 21
A: 20. Write an expression for conservation of energy
Q: A ball is dropped in a vacuum (no air resistance). As it falls it loses 7 J of potential energy. How...
A: Since there is no air resistance, mechanical energy is conserved.
