The 2021 QG High School Examination
Correct answer: B
A. Local or asymable orbit
B. The rotation of the earth
C. Area above the Earth’s equator
D. Speed “falls” around the Earth
In translation: At this altitude, the rate of “fall” around the Earth is about the same as Earth’s rotation, which allows the satellite to stay above the same spot on Earth almost constantly (At this altitude, the speed of “falling” around the Earth is equal to the speed of rotation of the Earth, allowing the satellite to stay above the same point on Earth almost continuously)
