Which of these statements is correct about the energy of a satellite:

[A] Potential energy= – 2 (Kinetic energy)

[B] Potential energy= 2 (Kinetic energy)
[C] Potential energy= – 3 (Kinetic energy)
[D] Potential energy= – (Kinetic energy)

1 thought on “Which of these statements is correct about the energy of a satellite:”

  1. A [Potential energy= – 2 (Kinetic energy)]
    Notes:
    Potential energy of a satellite: -L2/mr2 Potential energy of a satellite: -L2/2mr2 Therefore, Potential energy= – 2 (Kinetic energy)
