Geosynchronous satellite calculator

This page of converters and calculators section covers Geosynchronous satellite calculator. The calculator takes radius of orbit as input and calculates velocity, period of orbit, angular velocity and acceleration as outputs.

Radius of orbit in Km (input1) :

Velocity of satellite (Output1):

Orbit period (Output2):

Angular velocity (Output3):

Acceleration (Output4):

*Note: Enter values in INPUT boxes and Press CALCULATE button to check OUTPUTS.

INPUTS: Radius of Orbit = 41000 Km
OUTPUTS: Velocity of satellite = 3.11 km/s , period of orbit(time of period)= 82620.29 sec , Angular velocity = 76 x 10-6 rad/sec , Acceleration = 2.5 x 10-6 km/sec*sec

Geosynchronous satellite calculator Equation

This Geosynchronous satellite refers to the satellite placed above the earth at approx. 36000 Km height. The orbit path may be either circular or elliptical. As this satellite looks stationary from the point on the earth it is referred as Geosynchronous. Following equation or formula is used for Geosynchronous satellite calculator.

Based on the coverage and applications there are different types of satellites viz. international and national or domestic. For example, INTELSAT is used for international communication and DOMSAT is used for domestic communications.
