Question

What is the height range of polar satellites?
  1. 300 to 600 kilometers
  2. 500 to 800 kilometers
  3. 700 to 1000 kilometers
  4. 900 to 1200 kilometers


Solution

The correct option is B 500 to 800 kilometers
Polar satellites orbit at a lower altitude. On an average, their height ranges between 500 to 800 kilometers. This means that polar satellites can capture higher resolution images than geostationary satellites.
