## How do you calculate orbital?

Definition: Orbital Speed Equation—Circular Orbit In the special case of a circular orbit, an object’s orbital speed, 𝑣 , is given by the equation 𝑣 = 𝐺 𝑀 𝑟 , where 𝐺 is the universal gravitational constant, 𝑀 is the mass of the large object at the center of the orbit, and 𝑟 is the orbital radius.

### What is the period of a satellite with an orbital height of 23000 km?

These satellites orbit about 23,000 miles (37,015 km) above the equator and complete one revolution around Earth precisely every 24 hours.

**How many orbitals are in 1s?**

one orbital

At the first level there is only one orbital – the 1s orbital. At the second level there are four orbitals – the 2s, 2px, 2py and 2pz orbitals. Each orbital can hold either 1 or 2 electrons, but no more.

**What is Earth’s radius in km?**

3,958.8 miEarth / Radius

According to data taken by 183 high-school classes participating in a World Year of Physics project, “Measure the Earth with Shadows”, the radius of Earth is 6563 km, compared to the accepted value for the mean radius of 6371 km. Of course, no one is claiming the size of Earth has actually changed.

## What is orbital height?

The majority of satellites orbiting the Earth do so at altitudes between 160 and 2,000 kilometers. This orbital regime is called low Earth orbit, or LEO, due to the satellites’ relative closeness to the Earth. Satellites in LEO typically take between 90 minutes and 2 hours to complete one full orbit around the Earth.

### What if Earth stopped spinning?

At the Equator, the earth’s rotational motion is at its fastest, about a thousand miles an hour. If that motion suddenly stopped, the momentum would send things flying eastward. Moving rocks and oceans would trigger earthquakes and tsunamis. The still-moving atmosphere would scour landscapes.

**What is height of the orbit for which the T 24hrs?**

Since, we are dealing with a communication satellite, the time period of the communication satellite will always be 24 hours because it occupies a geostationary orbit in the sky. So, the height at which the communication satellite orbits the earth is approximately 35911km.

**What is the period of an orbit?**

The orbital period (also revolution period) is the time a given astronomical object takes to complete one orbit around another object, and applies in astronomy usually to planets or asteroids orbiting the Sun, moons orbiting planets, exoplanets orbiting other stars, or binary stars.

## How do you calculate orbitals?

Quantum Theory. Quantum theory postulates that atoms can only exist in certain energy states.

### How do you calculate orbital speed?

– If the specific orbital energy is positive the orbit is unbound, or open, and will follow a hyperbola with the larger body the focus of the hyperbola. – If the total energy is zero, (K.E = P.E.): the orbit is a parabola with focus at the other body. See radial parabolic trajectory. – If the total energy is negative, K.E. − P.E.

**How do you calculate orbital radius?**

– Where G is a gravitational constant (For Earth, G*m = 3.986004418*10^14 (m^3/s^2)) – m is the mass of earth (or other larger body) – and radius is the distance at which the smaller mass object is orbiting.
