Suppose we are in a satelite revolving around the earth with a velocity equal to orbital velocity. Now if we release a spoon from the satelite then will it reach the earth or will it just revolve around the earth like the satelite with a velocity equal to orbital velocity?
Imagine the satellite is see-through so that you can look at the spoon right through the satellite. What does it look like the spoon is doing relative to the Earth?
Due to inertia, the speed of the spoon is equal to the speed of the satellite. The orbit of the satellite is independent of the mass of the satellite, so the moon continues the speed of the satelite thus the spoon does not fall into the earth.
