A satellite with an orbital period of exactly 24.0 h is always positioned over the same spot on Earth.

This is known as a geosynchronous orbit. Television, communication, and weather satellites use geosynchronous orbits. At what distance would a satellite have to orbit Earth in order to have a geosynchronous orbit?
