As we learnt in 

Work done in changing the orbit -

W=E_{2}-E_{1}

W=\frac{GMm}{2}\left [ \frac{1}{r_{1}}-\frac{1}{r_{2}} \right ]

W\rightarrow work\: done

r_{1}\rightarrow radius\: of\: 1st\: orbit

r_{2}\rightarrow radius\: of\: 2nd\: orbit

- wherein

When satellite is transferred to higher orbit 

\left ( r_{2}>r_{1} \right )

Use given equation

 

 E = \dpi{100} (P.E)_{3R}-(P.E)_{2R}

=-\frac{GmM}{3R}-\left ( -\frac{GmM}{2R} \right )=+\frac{GmM}{6R}


Option 1)

GMm/12 R^{2}

Option 2)

GMm/3 R^{2}

This option is incorrect.

Option 3)

GMm/8 R

This option is incorrect.
