```maximum speed of 125 000 km/h on its way to photograph Jupiter. Beyond what
distance from the Sun is this speed sufficient to escape the solar system?
45. A satellite of mass 200 kg is placed into Earth orbit at a height of 200 km above
the surface. (a) Assuming a circular orbit, how long does the satellite take to
complete one orbit? (b) What is the satelliteâs speed? (c) Starting from the satellite
on the Earthâs surface, what is the minimum energy input necessary to place this
satellite in orbit? Ignore air resistance but include the effect of the planetâs daily
rotation.
46. A satellite of mass m, originally on the surface of the Earth, is placed into Earth
orbit at an altitude h. (a) Assuming a circular orbit, how long does the satellite
take to complete one orbit? (b) What is the satelliteâs speed? (c) What is the
minimum energy input necessary to place this satellite in orbit? Ignore air
resistance but include the effect of the planetâs daily rotation. Represent the mass
and radius of the Earth as ME and RE, respectively.
47. Ganymede is the largest of Jupiterâs moons. Consider a rocket on the surface of
Ganymede, at the point farthest from the planet (Fig. P13.47). Model the rocket as
a particle. (a) Does the presence of Ganymede make Jupiter exert a larger, smaller,
or same size force on the rocket compared with the force it would exert if
Ganymede were not interposed? (b) Determine the escape speed for the rocket
from the planetâsatellite system. The radius of Ganymede is 2.64 Ã 106 m, and its
mass is 1.495 Ã 1023 kg. The distance between Jupiter and Ganymede is 1.071 Ã
109 m, and the mass of Jupiter is 1.90 Ã 1027 kg. Ignore the motion of Jupiter and
Ganymede as they revolve about their center of mass.
