Then NASA boosted the satellite to an altitude of 2 miles above the planet. In the second orbit, the satellite travels how many miles farther than it travelled on the first orbit? (C=2 pie r) >>>>>>>>>PLEASE I NEED YOUR HELP, AND THANKS IN ADVANCEAnswer by stanbon(57387)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!A satellite makes a circular orbit around a planet of unknown diameter at an altitude of 1 mile above the planet. Then NASA boosted the satellite to an altitude of 2 miles above the planet. In the second orbit, the satellite travels how many miles farther than it travelled on the first orbit?(C=2 pie r) --------------- Circumference of 1st orbit: C = 2(pi)(1/2mi) = pi miles ---------------------- Circumference of 2nd orbit: C = 2(pi)*1mi = 2pi miles ----------------------- It travels pi miles further in the 2nd orbit than in the 1st. ======================== Cheers, Stan H.
