Orbital Velocity caclulator


 

Above the earth's surface at a height of

h =m

   = x 106 m,

which is the same as a radius

r = x earth radius,

agravity at radius r = m/s2

= x gearth surface  (9.8 m/s2)

At the specified orbit radius, the velocity required for orbit is

vtangential =m/s=km/h=mi/h.

The period of the orbit is minutes = hours.
