Satellite & Circular Motion & understanding of Geostationary Satellite

We will discuss here the circular motion of satellites, state of free fall of satellites, types of orbits, geostationary satellite and low Earth orbit satellites. Satellites undergo circular motion Satellites orbiting the Earth, including the Moon, are examples of objects undergoing circular motion. In this case of circular motion, the centripetal force is provided by […]

Orbital Velocity derivation & concepts for class 11 | How to derive the orbital velocity equation?

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.
