Question

Part A: 

  • How much gravitational potential energy must a 3030-kg satellite acquire in order to attain a geosynchronous orbit? 

Part B: 

  • How much kinetic energy must it gain? Note that because of the rotation of the Earth on its axis, the satellite had a velocity of 456 m/s relative to the center of the Earth just before launch.
