Question

Two satellites of masses m1 and m2(m1> m2) are revolving round the earth in circular orbits of radii r1 and r2(r1> r2) respectively. Which of the following statements is true regarding their speeds v1 and v2v1?

A
v1 = v2
B
v1 > v2
C
v1 < v2
D
v1r1=v2r2
Solution
Verified by Toppr

The correct option is C v1 < v2
consider a satellite revolving at a distance r from the earth.
inward force is GMmr2
and outward force is mv2r
equating both the expression for equilibrium.
so v=GMr.
so to if r increses then v decrease.
so best possible answer is option C.
