Newton's Law of Gravitation
F - gravitational force of attraction
m1, m2 - masses of the
r - distance
G - gravitational
Acceleration Due to Gravity
g - acceleration due to gravity at the surface
M - mass of the
R - radius of the
(R + h)2
g' - acceleration due to gravity at a height h above the
surface of the earth
g' = g
(R + h)
Where, r - mean density of the earth.
T2 a r3
Where, r - radius of the orbit of the satellite.
When body is at rest on the surface of the earth.
2(R + h)
Binding energy of the satellite.
