| **How long does it take for an artificial earth satellite to cover a path of 72,000 km if it covers a path of 16 km for every 2 s?**

To determine the time an artificial satellite travels 72,000 km, we first calculate the speed of its movement.

V = S / t, where S is the distance traveled (S = 16 km), t is the travel time (t = 2 s).

V = S / t = 16/2 = 8 km / s.

Time to travel 72,000 km:

t = S / V = 72000/8 = 9000 s.

Answer: An artificial satellite will take 9000 seconds.
