# In Exercises 34-44, use your calculator value of π unless otherwise stated. Round answers to two decimal places.A communications satellite forms a circular orbit 375 mi above the earth. If the earths radius is approximately 4000 mi. What distance is travelled by the satellite in one complete orbit.

To determine

To Find:

The distance travelled by the satellite.

Explanation

The radius of the earth is 4000 mi.

The satellite travels in a circular orbit above the earth is 375 mi.

Therefore, the radius of the circular orbit is 4000+375 = 4375 mi.

To find the distance travelled by the satellite in one complete orbit, find the circumference of the circular orbit.

The circumference of the circular chain is C=2πr.

Here, π=3
