Answer to Question #43043 in Mechanics | Relativity for Maximillian H
Two atomic clocks are synchronized while on Earth before one is launched (within a GPS satellite) into a medium-altitude Earth orbit. The satellite orbits the Earth at an altitude of 22,000 km, with an orbital velocity of 15,000 km/hr. After 1000 orbits, estimate the time difference between the two atomic clocks? (Assume that only special relativity effects are present.)
