Energy of a Satellite in circular orbit in terms of distance from Earth, r. A satellite in orbit possesses kinetic energy, KE, (by virtue of its speed motion) and gravitational potential energy, PE, (by virtue of its position within the Earth’s gravitational field).
Hence, total energy of a satellite, TE = PE + KE
This is a Lab that allows the exploration of this in a two dimensional space.
This app produce real numbers to coincident with the real world data.
My sincere gratitude for the tireless contributions of Francisco Esquembre, Fu-Kwun Hwang, Wolfgang Christian, Félix Jesús Garcia Clemente, Anne Cox, Andrew Duffy, Todd Timberlake and many more in the Open Source Physics community. I have designed much of the above based on their ideas and insights, and I thank the OSP community for which Singapore was honored with 2015-6 UNESCO King Hamad Bin Isa Al-Khalifa Prize for the Use of ICTs in Education. This research is supported by the eduLab project NRF2015-EDU001-EL021 , awarded by the Prime Minister Office, National Research Foundation (NRF), Singapore in collaboration with National Institute of Education (NIE), Singapore and the Ministry of Education (MOE), Singapore.
