Distance of satellite from center of earth are 7R and 3.5 R respectively
Time period of geostationary satellite is 24 hours
$\large\frac{T_2}{T_1}=\bigg(\large\frac{R_2}{R_1}\bigg)^{\frac{3}{2}}$
$T_2 =24 \bigg(\large\frac{3.5 R}{7R}\bigg)^{3/2}$
$\qquad= 6 \sqrt 2\;hours$

A geostationary satellite is at a height h above the surface of the earth If R is radius of earth 1) The mimimum coaltitude on earth upto which the satellite can be used for communication is $\sin ^{-1} \bigg(\large\frac{R}{R+a}\bigg)$ 2) The maximum coaltitude on earth upto which the satellite can be used for communication is $\sin ^{-1} \bigg(\large\frac{R}{R+h}\bigg)$ 3) Area of earth escaped from this satellite is given by $ (2 \pi R^2(1+\sin \theta)$ 4) Area of earth escaped from this satellite is given by $ (2 \pi R^2(1+\cos \theta)$
