If suddenly we reduce the speed of the satellite is it bound to fall to the earth ? Or it can continue moving in circular orbit with smaller R ? If i want it to fall , how can i calculate where on earth does it fall ? And what should be the reduced speed so it will fall there ?

Ok im not expecting from you to tell me all the exact equations to solve this but some general eplain would be useful. Thanks
