Physics: Gravity forces and fields between two masses (earth and spacecraft)

See attached file.

Assume the earth to be a uniform spherical planet, mass M= (5.98 E 24) kg. (The number, in scientific notation, means '5.98 times 10 to the 24') The earth's radius is R= (6.37 E 6) m.

Part a. Find the force of gravity between the earth and a spacecraft whose mass is m= 36000 kg, which is at height h= 520,000 m above the surface.

Part b. From the definition of gravity field of the earth at the spaceship's location as 'the force the earth exerts on the spaceship divided by the mass of the spaceship' find the earth's field at that location.

Part c. Find the distance from the center of the earth to a point in space where the earth's gravity field is 2.5 nt/kg.

Part a.
Newton's gravitation law, (1) F = G M m / r^2 expresses the force F between two masses, M and m, with distance r between their centers of mass. The letter G is the 'universal gravitational constant', the same value when using (1) for any two objects in the universe. ...

For a spacecraft going from the Earth toward the Sun, at what distance from the Earth will the gravitational forces due to the Sun and the Earth cancel out? [The mass of the Earth is 5.98 x 10 24 kg. The mass of the Sun is 1.99 x 10
30 kg. The Earth-Sun distance is 1.50 x 10 11 m.]

Very far from earth (at {see attachment}), a spacecraft has run out of fuel and its kinetic energy is zero. If only the gravitational force of the earth were to act on it (i.e., neglect the forces from the sun and other solar system objects), the spacecraft would eventually crash into the earth. The mass of the earth is Me and i

In his novel "From the earth to the moon", Jules Verne imagined that astronauts inside a space ship would walk on the floor of the cabin when the force exerted on the ship by the earth was greater than the force exerted by the moon. When the force exerted by the moon was greater he thought the astronauts would walk on the ceili

Very far from earth (at R=infinity), a spacecraft has run out of fuel and its kinetic energy is zero. If only the gravitational force of the earth were to act on it (i.e., neglect the forces from the sun and other solar system objects), the spacecraft would eventually crash into the earth. The mass of the earth is M_e and its ra

1. A magnetic field can change the direction of motion of a charged particle yet in doing so it has done no work on the particle. Why? Give another example of a force causing an object to change direction without doing any work on it.
2. Explain why it takes more fuel for a spacecraft to travel to the Moon from Earth than it ta

The radius of the Earth is R. At what distance above the Earth's surface will the acceleration of gravity be 4.9 m/s2 ? [Hint: Compute the distance, as a multiple of R, at which the acceleration due to gravity is half its surface value. Then subtract 1 from that value (because the problem asks "above the Earth's surface" ...
