Default Difficult Physics problem?

A spy satellite is in circular orbit around Earth. It makes one revolution in 6.05 hours. (Radius of the Earth=6.371 106 m)

(a) How high above Earth's surface is the satellite?

(b) What is the satellite's acceleration?

I'm really lost, I've been at it for awhile now
