Answer to Question #33382 in Mechanics | Relativity for Tilak Raj
Obtain an expression for the time period of a satellite orbiting the earth. A space shuttle is in a
circular orbit at a height of 250 km from the earth’s surface, where the acceleration due to earth’s
gravity is 0.93 g. Calculate the period of its orbit. Take g = 9.8 ms−2 and the radius of the earth
R = 6.37 × 106m.
