8.  A satellite has an apogee altitude of 3,560 km and a perigee altitude of 460 km.

a.  Calculate the satellite's semimajor axis (a).

b.  Find the eccentricity of its orbit (e).

9.  Based on the information in Problem 8:

a.  Determine the altitude above the Earth of the orbit when the true anomaly is v = 65°.

b.  What is the specific mechanical energy of this orbit?

10.  Based on the information in question 8 and 9, What is the velocity of the orbit when the true anomaly is v = 65°?
