    draw a diagram

    write down what you know from the question

    F = m\omega^{2} r

    ?

    well, the satellite's undergoing circular motion

    what's the time period of one revolution

    once you know that, what's the angular velocity?

    finish by F = m\omega^{2}r

    I get 38.1N

    I get \frac{1}{3}5\times10^{5} \pi N (524000N)
    er 2pi/24*60*60 ? dont quite understand about the values i need mostly.

    F is the gravitational force the satellite feels, m is the mass of the satellite, omega is the angular velocity and r is the radius (remember to include the distance between the satellite all the way to the centre of the planet)

    this question makes no sense i mean how do you class the mass and the angular velocity ?

    well based on what's given in the question

    the mass of the satellite is 1 tonne

    the angular velocity is \dfrac{2 \pi}{24*60^{2}}

    the book says 38.1N?

    my mistake, I forgot to square the angular velocity!

    the book is indeed correct
