ANSWERS: 4
  • c. beyond the pull of earth's gravity
  • B is the most accurate answer. however it is just the fact that the earth has limits, if by some impossibility of structural integrity the earth were a cube, satelites would still orbit by the same principle (though the increased gravity at each corner would slightly change the shape of the orbit)
  • technically gravity is a push not a pull. The Answer is B . http://www.howstuffworks.com/question378.htm
  • I think the answer is A. I'd put it this way: the satellite is circling the Earth. It's going just fast enough so that centrifugal force is pulling it away from the Earth with the same force that gravity is pulling it downward. If it went faster it would fly off into outer space; if it went slower it would fall to Earth.
