A 191.5 kg satellite is in a circular orbit of 22,000 miles (35,405,000 m) in radius. The force keeping the satellite in orbit is 46.5 N. What is the velocity (speed) of the satellite? The catapult on an aircraft carrier can take an aircraft weighing 300,000 N from 0 to 189.8 mph in 9.7 seconds, at which time the aircraft launches. What is the acceleration of the aircraft when it launches? Express your answer in the MKS system of units.
