**Answer:**

as the fuel burns,games push against the rocket moving it upward

Yes, an object<span> that was set in motion in the past by some force, but that is no longer being acted on by a net force, is </span>moving<span> but with </span>zero acceleration<span>, i.e. it is </span>moving<span> at constant velocity.</span>

**Answer:**

**Explanation:**

The gravitational force exerted on the satellites is given by the Newton's Law of Universal Gravitation:

Where M is the mass of the earth, m is the mass of a satellite, R the radius of its orbit and G is the gravitational constant.

Also, we know that the centripetal force of an object describing a circular motion is given by:

Where m is the mass of the object, v is its speed and R is its distance to the center of the circle.

Then, since the gravitational force is the centripetal force in this case, we can equalize the two expressions and solve for v:

Finally, we plug in the values for G (6.67*10^-11Nm^2/kg^2), M (5.97*10^24kg) and R for each satellite. Take in account that R is the radius of the orbit, not the distance to the planet's surface. So and (Since ). Then, we get:

In words, the orbital speed for satellite A is 7667m/s (a) and for satellite B is 7487m/s (b).
