Hi im needing some help with two questions could you please show the formula and the way its solved?Thanks PS:Could you also explain what the difference of velocity and apogee and perigee?

1.)A satellite’s orbit is at a 45 degree inclination. It has a perigee altitude of 400 kilometers and an apogee altitude 2000 kilometers. It has an angular momentum of 54,653.38 km2/sec. What are its semi-major axis and its specific mechanical energy, its period and velocity at Apogee and Perigee?

2.)A satellite’s orbit has a period of 55.555 hours, and a semilatus rectum of 72,254.4 km. What is the orbit’s eccentricity?
