International Space Station. In its orbit each day, the International Space Station makes 15.65 revolutions around the earth. Assuming a circular orbit, how high is this satellite above the surface of the earth?

Solution to 22E Step 1 of 4 Introduction We are asked to find how high the international space station is above earth while revolving around the earth for 15.65 on each day. G=6.67x10 m kg s -1 -2 24 Mass of the earth =5.97x10 kg 6 Radius of the earth=6.38x10 m Step 2 of 4 One day=24x60x60=86400s Time taken for one revolution=86400s/15.65 T=5520s
