    Purpose of use
    general curiosity
    Comment/Request
    would be great to be able to specify any parameter and calculate the others

    Purpose of use
    Calculate oribtal speed around Ceres
    Comment/Request
    Can we have a version where we can input the acceleration due to gravity? could be a dropdown list of presets and the ability to enter a custom value. I am trying to work out if a fast bowler on Ceres could technically put a ball into orbit.

    Discovering at what speed you'd need to push a squirrel to miss the earth at that squirrel's fatal fall altitude (8000kms)

    Purpose of use
    I am writing a sci-fi novel and am doing preliminary research on the altitude that a time mirror would have to orbit so that its antiproton beam will always point at the Earths' southern rotational axis. The mirror is mounted in a fixture which will enable it to maintain the correct attitude, but I was wondering if the orbital radius over the South Pole (rotational axis) has to be fixed or does it matter. I think that it doesn't matter, as long as the satellite maintains a circum-solar orbit.(?)

    Purpose of use
    Checking my spreadsheet calculations before teaching class
    Comment/Request
    My results are slightly different -- a bit high on orbital altitude and a bit low on velocity. Suspect the difference may be the result of different values used for G, m_earth and radius_earth. Spreadsheet uses 6.674E-11 m3/kg sec2, 5.972E+24 kg, 6437E+06 m.
