an artificial satellite is orbiting at 500 km above the earth's surface. take the radius of earth as 6.5 * 106 .
  1. ​​​​find the acceleration due to gravity at any point along the satellite path.
  2. What is the centripetal acceleration of the satellite?

g` be the acceleration due to gravity at any point in the path.

g`=g(1+h)-2
  =9.8(1+5006.5*106)-2
   
centripetal acc =GMm
