    The time taken by the satellite to orbit earth at its surface, t = 1.66 hr

    Explanation:

    Given data,

    The velocity of the satellite, v = 15000 miles/hr

    The distance of travel, d = 24901 miles,

    It is equal to the circumference of earth,

    So the time taken by the satellite to orbit earth at its surface,

    v = d/t

    t = d/v

    Substituting the given values in the above equation,

    t = 24901 / 15000

    = 1.66 hr

    Hence, the time taken by the satellite to orbit earth at its surface, t = 1.66 hr
