Artificial satellites were produced and used for many purposes. Investigation been made to understand how artificial satellites were to orbit the earth. Initial result showed that velocity was the key for artificial satellites to stay at its orbits. Moreover, different height from the surface of the earth can affect the velocity. The height from the surface of earth provides different velocity for the artificial satellite to be followed and artificial satellites followed more than one type of orbit each provide different velocity. In Chapter 1, been introduced and there will be some history about the artificial satellites. In Chapter 2, an investigation will be make based on the theorem of the orbit that introduced by a great mathematician name Johannes Kepler. Furthermore, in this chapter there will be some explanations and reviews from literature for the orbits equation and the rocket equation. In Chapter 3 method that been use which are the formulas that involved will be introduced. These formulas are being used to prove the orbit equations and the rocket equation. In Chapter 4, section 1 there will be some more explanation and example for the orbits equations. In section 2 there will be methods to be used for launching a rocket to the geostationary orbits (GEOs) and the complete demonstration that involves all the equation. In section 3, will be a discussion about the viability of launching in Malaysia. In the last chapter, will be the conclusions that about the idea of the orbits for artificial satellites and future work of this project
