Zooming around the Sun!

Classical Mechanics Level 5

If we would build a satellite sufficiently heat-resistant to orbit the sun directly above its surface, in how much time would that satellite complete a single orbit?

Give your answer in hours, rounded to the nearest integer.

Data to be used:

\[\dfrac{\text{earth's distance to sun}}{\text{sun's radius}} = 215 , \qquad \dfrac{\text{one year}}{\text{one hour}} = 8766.\]
