The speed of the satellite is 8.0(10 3 ) ms at the minimum distance from the orbit to the center of a new planet. The radius of this new planet is 7,575 km. What velocity is required to send the satellite into this orbit if the gravitational constant is G = 50(10 -12 ) * m3kg s2 ? Solution We know that the initial velocity of the satellite must have something to do . . with the path that it needs to take Eccentricity is a measure of the trajectory , : So we ll start with that = e Ch2GMp , = - = where C 1r01 GMpr0v02 and h r0v0 Substitute in C and h : and simplify equation = e - *( ) → = - * * → = * - 1r01 GMpr0v02 r0v0 2GMp e 1r0 GMpr02v02 r02 v02 GMp e r0 v02 → = * - GMpGMp e r0 v02GMp 1 - : Re arrange equation to solve for initial velocity + = e 1 * * + = * * + = r0 v02GMp GMp e 1 r0 v02 GMp e 1r0 v02 * + = GMp e 1r0 v0 M p , is unknown

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
