The Navstar Global Positioning System (GPS) utilizes a group of 2424 satellites orbiting the Earth. Using "triangulation" and signals transmitted by these satellites, the position of a receiver on the Earth can be determined to within an accuracy of a few centimeters. The satellite orbits are distributed around the Earth, allowing continuous navigational "fixes." The satellites orbit at an altitude of approximately 11,00011,000 nautical miles [1 nautical mile =1.852 km=6076ft=1.852 \mathrm{~km}=6076 \mathrm{ft} ] (a) Determine the speed of each satellite.
