This problem relates to finding the speed and height of a satellite where the effects from gravitational time dilation and dynamic (velocity) dependent time dilation will cancel each other.
"The function is $ \displaystyle h=\frac{R}{\frac{r_s}{R} \frac{c^2}{v^2}1}$. The effect happens for any speed $ \displaystyle 0<v<c \sqrt{\frac{r_s}{R}}$. For $ \displaystyle v \to c \sqrt {\frac{r_s}{R}$ we have $ \displaystyle h \to \infty$. $ \displaystyle R$ is the radius of the planet and $ \displaystyle r_s$ is its respective Schwarzschild radius. $ \displaystyle v$ is the orbiting speed of the satellite."
Are those two formulas interchangeable? Can you algebraically move between these two? $ \displaystyle 1r_s/R=1r_s/(R+h)(v/c)^2$ and $ \displaystyle h=\frac{R}{\frac{r_s}{R} \frac{c^2}{v^2}1}$
Can anyone show me the steps I need to take to convert one equation into the other please? Or if that can't be done, how do I solve the first one for "h" which is the height of the satellite above the Earth's surface.
Even if you could give me one clue at a time so I have to do it myself.

$ \displaystyle 1r_s/R=1r_s/(R+h)(v/c)^2$ rearranged to solve for "a" (a = h + R) is giving identical values to the other formula. $ \displaystyle h(v)=\frac{R}{\frac{r_s}{R}\frac{c^2}{v^2}1}$ But I'd love to know how to rearrange one formula to result in the form of the other. Is there anyone good at algebra here?

My girlfriends son is getting home schooled and I had to help him with some algebra and it was was to hard for me. So I did some searching online and I found this really cool algebra help site. It doesn't benefit me in anyway if you visit the site I just wanted to give it to you because it saved the day for me: Tiger Algebra

I'm not yet sure, but have created a thread in the mod forum requesting Skinwalker take a look next time he logs in (don't feel the need is critical enough to contact him at his personal account and appreciate your patience and understanding) my best guess is that the most likely scenario is an upgrade in the background borked the code we inserted to make it work and something on our end needs to be changed

[This forum has some really good attributes but if it ever did go stronger in the math and physics threads the Latex features would be a limiting factor. I have no knowledge on how to fix it.]
