Question
29: A satellite is revolving around the earth in a circular orbit with a
uniform speed. If the gravitational force suddenly disappears, then the
satellite will

a.
Continue to move in the same orbit with that speed

b.
Move tangentially to the orbit with that speed

c.
Move away from the earth normally to the orbit

d.
Fall down on the earth

Question
30: A satellite can be in a geostationary orbit around a planet at a distance r
from the centre of the planet. If the angular velocity of the planet about its
axis doubles, a satellite can now be in a geostationary orbit around the planet
if its distance from the centre of the planet is –
