Problem 1: Geostationary Satellite A geostationary satellite goes around the earth once every 23 hours 56 minutes and 4 seconds, (a sidereal day, shorter than the noon-to-noon solar day of 24 hours) so that its position appears stationary with respect to a ground station. The mass of the earth is m e = 5.98 ! 10 24 kg . The mean radius of the earth is 6 e 6.37 10 m R = ! . The universal constant of gravitation is G = 6.67 ! 10 " 11 N
