Starting with GM r T 2 3 2 π = (Eq.(12.14)), v r T 2 π = , and r GM v = (Eq.(12.12)) find the velocity and period of the initial orbit: s, m 10 672 . 7 m 10 776 . 6 ) kg 10 97 . 5 )( kg m N 10 673 . 6 ( 3 6 24 2 2 11 × = × × × = - v and 5 . 92 s 5549 2 = = = v r T min.

It will take 22 minutes for the cable to break. c) The ISS is moving faster than the space shuttle, so the total angle it covers in an orbit must be 2 radians more than the angle that the space shuttle covers before they are
