A cloud of dust in space originally occupies volume V= 3.5 x 10^26 m^3 whose average density D= .0085 kg/m^3. Over many billions of years it contracts to form a uniform spherical planet with radius r=5.5 x 10^6 m. Part a. Find the gravity field, g, at the surface of the planet. Part b. Find the orbital speed v, of a spacecr

Accodting to Newton's universal law of gravity, if the separation between to bodies is increased by a factor of three, the gravitational pull each has on the other will be X by a factor of Y ?

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

1. Show by algebraically reasoning that your gravitation acceleration towards an object of mass M a distance d away is a=GM/d^2 and therefore doesn't depend on your mass. 2. Can a satellite coast in a stable orbit in a plan that doesn't intersect the earth center? Defend your answer. (Include 1 or more diagrams) 3. Stude

Three coplanar forces act on a 75000.0 kg object in outer space, where there is no gravity: 14.2 kN directed at 357°, 25.6 kN at 138°, and 16.4 kN at 255°. What is the magnitude and direction of the acceleration? If the object has an initial velocity of 17.5 miles/h directed at 58.6° in the same plane as all three

SEE ATTACHMENT #1 for a diagram showing parameters. Consider the earth, mass M= 5.98 E 24 kg, and the moon, mass m= 7.35 E 22 kg, as a system with distance d= 3.84 E 8 m between their centers. Find the distance between the c.m. (center of mass) of the system, and the point where the gravity field of the earth cancels that

SEE ATTACHMENT #1 for a diagam showing parameters and basic equations (1) and (2). A thin rod of negligible mass is 6 meters long. Five equal masses, each M= 2.5 kg, are attached to the rod evenly spaced 1.2 meters apart. In gravity free space, the system rotates about the center of the rod, completing 15 revolutions every 6

A) Very often a sinking ship will turn over as it becomes immersed in water. Why? B) Is it true that a floating object will only be in stable equilibrium if its centre of buoyancy lies above its centre of gravity? C) Why should one take short steps rather than long ones when walking on ice?

A simple pendulum, length L, completes 12 oscillations in 30 seconds here on the earth where g= 9.8 nt/kg. The same length pendulum on a certain moon of Jupiter, completes 18 oscillations in 54 seconds. a.) Find the acceleration of gravity, g1, on that moon. b.) Find the weight on the surface of that moon, of a person w

See attachment #1 for diagram showing parameters. A uniform spherical planet has mass M= 8.5 E 25 kg and radius R= 7.5 E 6 m. A hole is drilled from the surface to mass m= 360 kg at an initial position r1= 2.5 E 6 m from the center. PART a. Find the initial gravity force F that the planet exerts on mass m. PART b. F

Show that the gravity field of a spherical shell of matter is zero at all points within it.

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=

Imagine that you have a solid cube composed of Material X. You put the cube into a beaker filled with water. The cube sinks to the bottom of the beaker and sits there, at rest, on the bottom. Which of the following statements are true? (Give ALL correct answers: B, AC, BCD, ... , or None) A) The buoyant force on the cub

A ball is thrown straight upward and rises to a maximimum height of 16m above its launch point. At what height above its launch point has the speed of the ball decreased to 1/2 its initial value?

Why can't a person just walk or run up a wall? What is keeping them from performing this task? Which formula, would best describe what is going on?
