Question

A communications satellite weighs 44004400N on Earth where g=9.81ms2g=9.81 \frac{m}{s^2} . What is the weight of the satellite, in N, as it orbits Earth where the acceleration of gravity is 0.224ms20.224 \frac{m}{s^2}. Express each weight in lbf.

Solutions

Verified

Step 1

1 of 5

Data:

Fearth=4400NF_{earth} = 4400 N - The weight of the satellite on Earth

gearth=9,81m/s2g_{earth} = 9,81 m/s^2 - Gravitational acceleration on Earth

gorbit=0,224m/s2g_{orbit} = 0,224 m/s^2 - Gravitational acceleration in orbit
