Choose the correct alternative.

 1 If the zero of potential energy is at infinity, the total energy of an orbiting satellite is negative of its kinetic energy. 2 If the zero of potential energy is at infinity, the total energy of an orbiting satellite is negative of its potential energy. 3 The energy required to launch an orbiting satellite out of earth’s gravitational influence is more than the energy required to project a stationary object at the same height (as the satellite) out of earth’s influence. 4 Both (1) and (3) are correct.
