Going orbital!

Just worked up a table of orbit heights, periods, and velocities, using Excel. And I know I got it right 'cuz I checked the numbers against the book. Feeling inordinately proud of myself. W00t.





The table reflects both the conversion for nautical miles (which are customarily used for altitude) and the Earth's radius (standardized as 6378km). Mu for Earth is 398,600 km^3 s^-2.
