You should at least show your understanding of the problem. Otherwise, this will be considered as cheating. 1) ) An artificial satellite travels in an elliptical orbit around the earth, at a large distance from it. When the satellite is at its closest distance R 0 from the center of the earth, the velocity of the satellite is observed to have a magnitude v 0 , and a direction perpendicular to the line of sight from the earth to the satellite. A) What is the speed of the satellite when it is at a distance 3R 0 from the center of the earth? Express your answer in terms of v 0 , R 0 , and the radius Re of the earth, and the magnitude g of the
