The satellite motion in a fixed orbit is characterized by the following factors :

(i) The earth’s gravitational pull at the height is equal to the centripetal force at that height.

(ii) The angular velocity of satellite about earth’s centre remains constant.

(iii) The linear speed of the satellite is also constant.
