A satellite is rotating around Earth at 0.25 radians per hour at an altitude of 242 km above Earth. If the radius of Earth is 6378 kilometers, find the linear speed of the satellite in kilometers per hour.
1655 kilometers per hour

An angle is formed from the union of two rays, by keeping the initial side fixed and rotating the terminal side. The amount of rotation determines the measure of the angle.
An angle is in standard position if its vertex is at the origin and its initial side lies along the positive
x -axis. A positive angle is measured counterclockwise from the initial side and a negative angle is measured clockwise.
To draw an angle in standard position, draw the initial side along the positive
x -axis and then place the terminal side according to the fraction of a full rotation the angle represents. See
[link] .
In addition to degrees, the measure of an angle can be described in radians. See
[link] .
To convert between degrees and radians, use the proportion
$\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\frac{\theta}{180}=\frac{{\theta}^{R}}{\pi}.$ See
[link] and
[link] .
Two angles that have the same terminal side are called coterminal angles.
We can find coterminal angles by adding or subtracting 360° or
$\text{\hspace{0.17em}}2\pi .\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ See
[link] and
[link] .
Coterminal angles can be found using radians just as they are for degrees. See

The length of a circular arc is a fraction of the circumference of the entire circle. See
[link] .
The area of sector is a fraction of the area of the entire circle. See

An object moving in a circular path has both linear and angular speed.
The angular speed of an object traveling in a circular path is the measure of the angle through which it turns in a unit of time. See
[link] .
The linear speed of an object traveling along a circular path is the distance it travels in a unit of time. See

Verbal
Draw an angle in standard position. Label the vertex, initial side, and terminal side.
Explain why there are an infinite number of angles that are coterminal to a certain angle.
State what a positive or negative angle signifies, and explain how to draw each.
Whether the angle is positive or negative determines the direction. A positive angle is drawn in the counterclockwise direction, and a negative angle is drawn in the clockwise direction.
How does radian measure of an angle compare to the degree measure? Include an explanation of 1 radian in your paragraph.
Explain the differences between linear speed and angular speed when describing motion along a circular path.
Linear speed is a measurement found by calculating distance of an arc compared to time. Angular speed is a measurement found by calculating the angle of an arc compared to time.
Questions & Answers
Is there any normative that regulates the use of silver nanoparticles?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
Tarell
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
Damian
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

what is the Synthesis, properties,and applications of carbon nano chemistry
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.

Do you know which machine is used to that process?
