Re: How about 4? (Dale)

The problem defined "geosynchronous" as being an orbit that maintained the satellite in the same position over the planet at all times. So the Author of the problems had a semantic problem, which I did not catch. I'm sure the teacher will be sufficiently annoyed when that is pointed out! And it certainly stimulated a lot of thinking and discussion in the classroom, which is always good.
