A satellite is revolving in space around the earth in an orbit that’s
km away from the earth’s surface, where
the gravitational force between the satellite and the earth is N. Given that the earth’s mass is
kg, its radius is km,
and the universal gravitational constant is
determine the mass of the satellite.
Find the distance between the centres of the masses in metres.
Use the universal gravitational law to find the mass of the satellite knowing that
