Two satellites are launched at a distance R from a planet of negligible radius. Both satellites are launched in the
tangential direction. The first satellite launches correctly at a speed v0 and enters a circular orbit. The second
satellite, however, is launched at a speed ½v0
(A) 1
v2 ???? (B) 1
2 ???? (C) 1
3 ???? (D) 1

. What is the minimum distance between the second satellite and
the planet over the course of its orbit?
*51. When two stars are very far apart, their gravitational potential energy is zero; when they are separated by a
distance d, the gravitational potential energy of the system is U. What is the gravitational potential energy of the
system if the stars are separated by a distance 2d?
