A satellite at r(0) =10,000 miles from the center of the earth is given an initial velocity v(0) = 20,000 ft/s in the direction shown(getting further away). Determine the magnitude of the transverse component of the satellites velocity when r=20,000mi.(the radius of earth is 3960mi.)© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com March 6, 2023, 12:43 pm ad1c9bdddf
