A satelite in circular orbit 1250 kilometers above Earth makes one complete revolution every 110 minutes. What is its linear speed? Assume that Earth is a sphere of radius 6400 kilometers

step 1. the radius of the orbit for satellite is the sum of the radius of the earth and distance above earth so orbit radius is: R = 1250 + 6400 = 7650 km Time taken for one revolution T = 110 mins = 110/60 = 11/6 hours (1 hr = 60 mins) step 2: total linear distance covered in one revolution of a radius R orbit is S = 2*pi*R (its perimeter of the the circular orbit pi = 22/7 approx) S = 2*(22/7)*7650 km step 3: linear speed = Linear distance / Total time taken = 2*(22/7)*7650 / (11/6) km/hr linear speed = 26228.57 km/hr

Thank you! Having to take the 2nd semester of precal in order to graduate early in december without having been taught the first yet! I appreciate it.
