Question is: compute the radius of a geostationary satellite's orbit in units of the Earth's radius.
My answer is:
Earth's radius R = 6378.1 km approx
Satellite is 35,786km above ground so radius of the orbit in terms of earth's radius is (35,786/6378.1)R + 1R = 6.61 R
Have I missed anything here or is it just that simple?
Thanks for any advice.
