• ### An earth satellite moves in a circular orbit with an orbital speed of 5800 m/s

An earth satellite moves in a circular orbit with an orbital speed of 5800 m/s. Find the time (expressed in seconds) of one revolution of the satellite. Find the radial acceleration of the satellite in its orbit.I think we need to know the radius of the earth and the satellite's average distance from the earth in order to answer the question. All we have right now is the angular velocity. If you have that information, then use d=v*t where d...
