Question

The periodic time (see Prob. 12.83) of an earth satellite in a circular polar orbit is 120 minutes. Determine (a) the altitude h of the satellite, (b) the time during which the satellite is above the horizon for an observer located at the north pole.

Reference to Problem 12.83:

A satellite is placed into a circular orbit about the planet Saturn at an altitude of 2100 mi. The satellite describes its orbit with a velocity of 54.7 × 103 mi/h. Knowing that the radius of the orbit about Saturn and the periodic time of Atlas, one of Saturn’s moons, are 85.54 × 103 mi and 0.6017 days, respectively, determine (a) the radius of Saturn, (b) the mass of Saturn. (The periodic time of a satellite is the time it requires to complete one full revolution about the planet.)
