Answer:8.58 m/s.Explanation:Given,

Mass of the asteroid,M = 1.50 x 10¹⁶ Kg

radius = 9 Km

distance of the satellite, r = 4.60 Km

Speed of the satellite = ?

R = 9 + 4.60 = 13.60 Km

Speed of the satellite rotating in orbit

G is gravitational constant

v = 8.58 m/s

Speed of the satellite is equal to

8.58 m/s.
