Fan and medal , HELP PLEASEEE A satellite is in circular orbit 25,000 miles above Earth. Write an equation for the orbit of this satellite if the origin is at the center of the Earth. Use 8,000 as the diameter of the Earth. ??

Ok so this is the equ of a circle which is : (x-a)^2+(y-b)^2=R^2 right?

Ok so let us get the coordinate of the center and as it says that the center of the satellite is of the earth soo...
anonymous
  • anonymous
??
anonymous
  • anonymous
Then the center which is taken as origin has coordinates O(0,0) so now we can write the equ. As x^2-y^2=R^2
anonymous
  • anonymous
Sorry x^2+y^2=R^2
anonymous
  • anonymous
Understood till now??
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes
anonymous
  • anonymous
but im still confused
anonymous

Ok and the satellite is 25000 miles over the earth and the earth has a diameter of 8000 miles thus a radius of 4000miles therefore from the center pf the earth to the satellite which is the radius of the equation is 25000+4000=29000 therefore the equ. Gives us x^2+y^2=25000^2
anonymous
  • anonymous
Sorry 29000^2*

Whats confusing you?
anonymous
  • anonymous
I understand now , I thought that , I need more process than that
anonymous
  • anonymous
you know more formulas etc , but thank you so much !
anonymous
  • anonymous
Your welcome :) btw are you arab?
anonymous
  • anonymous
not I'm not lol, why ?

If you need to find the amount of time the satellite takes to complete one orbit, this page should help you. http://www.1728.org/kepler3a.htm 1.1613 days by the way

thank you @wolf1728

thanks Leyla :-)

Hehe nothing forget it :p

That page has the formula you will need time = sq root[(4*PI^2 * radius^3) / (G*m)] If you need some help with that, I'll help you
anonymous
  • anonymous
well I dont need the time, but thank you anyway, BUT i need help with a different question you think that you can help? @wolf1728
wolf1728
  • wolf1728
Well, ask the question and let's see.

Center at (2, 4), tangent to x-axis
wolf1728
  • wolf1728
Is that for a circle?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes
wolf1728
  • wolf1728
Okay, if the circle is tangent to the x-axis and center is at x=2 y =4 then it would need a radius of 4.
wolf1728
  • wolf1728
Circle's equation formula is: (x -a)² + (y -b)² = r² where center = (a, b)
anonymous
  • anonymous
so 2 is a, and 4 is b ?
wolf1728
  • wolf1728
yes and r^2 would be 16
anonymous
  • anonymous
thank youuuuuuuuu so much , I feel like i love u right now lol jk , but thank seriusly :)
wolf1728
  • wolf1728
ok you are welcome :-)
anonymous
  • anonymous
heeyy hold on! , i dont want to bother you but i have a question, Center in the first quadrant: tangent to x=5 the x-axis and the y-axis. So this question is kinda the same like the previus ?
