Scientists want to place a 2800.0 kg satellite in orbit around Mars. They plan to have the satellite orbit at a speed of 2695.0 m/s in a perfectly circular orbit. Here is some information that may help solve this problem:
mass of mars = 6.4191 x 10^23 kg
radius of mars = 3.397 x 10^6 m
G = 6.67428 x 10^-11 N-m^2/kg^2
What radius should the satellite move at in its orbit? (Measured frrom the center of Mars.)
