# Orbit of a satellite Calculator

## Calculates the orbital radius and period, and flight velocity from the orbital altitude. | ||

- Comment/Request
- Would appreciate if orbital height wasn't the only variable one could use to solve.

Being able to calculate the orbital height, radius, and velocity from an orbital period for example.

- Purpose of use
- Watching a campy old movie titled 'Starflight' from 1983 where a supersonic airliner accidentally gets thrown into an 87-mile-high orbit around the earth. 7.822 Km/sec and one hour twenty-seven minutes orbital period. Oh no!

- Purpose of use
- To further understand orbital period of LEOs and Cubesats. The lower the satellite orbit, the shorter the time to communicate with the bird.

- Purpose of use
- Check my calculation on a past exam question
- Comment/Request
- maybe there can be a calculator for elliptic or parabolic(escape v) calculator too
