Orbital Velocity – derivation of orbital velocity formula

Orbital Velocity of a satellite is the minimum velocity it has to maintain to continue its circular motion in its orbit or in other words it is the minimum velocity of the object in circular motion that generates enough centripetal force to keep it in the circular orbit of given radius. We will discuss this in details as well as we will focus on the derivation of Orbital Velocity formula.
