One of the main applications of the flying rocket experiment using the bottles is the orbiting satellites around the earth. The satellites that were placed outside our earth are important since they provide substantial information around the globe which includes the communication, location and topography. The force that they need to consider is the centripetal force or the force that allow a certain body (mass) to move in a circular path. It can also be define as the motion of a particular object in circle at a constant speed. There is force needed to be applied to the satellite in order to maintain similar radius thus will be having a constant path in a circular orbit.
