This vCalc equation computes the orbit period, P, of a satellite in a circular orbit at input altitude, H.  You select the distance units for H.  The orbit period P is defined in units of time, which you can also select.

Notes

We use this orbit period to determine length of time our satellite has access to a point on the Earth, the access period.
