Why are the synodic and sidereal period of moon different?
The solar wind is a continuous stream of particles, mostly protons and electrons, moving away from the Sun. When the particles encounter Earth's upper atmosphere, they are moving at speeds of several hundred km/s. If such a particle reaches Earth's upper atmosphere with a speed of 92 km/s, how fast was it moving when it cross
A mass M of 2.71 kg is attached to the end of a string whose length is 0.640 m. The mass slides without friction on a horizontal surface. If the string can withstand a maximum tension of 77.1 N, what is the maximum tangential speed the ball can have before the string breaks?
A hydrogen atom when in its lowest energy state consists of a proton of charge +e and an electron of charge -e and mass 9.1x10-31 kg. In the Bohr model of the atom, the electron moves around the nucleus in a circular orbit of radius 0.51x10-10 m. Determine the speed that another electron, starting very far away from the hydrogen
A satellite is placed in a circular orbit 600km above the surface of the earth. Find the period of the motion of this satellite.
PART ONE: A bright line in the spectrum of an element such as hydrogen is associated with: A) an electron orbit of low energy B) an electron orbit of high energy C) the transfer of an electron from a low energy orbit to a high energy orbit D) the transfer of an electron from a high energy orbit to a low energy orbit
An electron enters a uniform magnet field having a flux density 200uT at a speed of 2x10 6 ms-1 perpendicular to the field. Determine the radius of its orbit, then find the required electric field strength, applied perpendicular to the magnetic field, if the electron is to be continue in a straight line on entering the combined
Determining the distance of Halley's Comet from the sun at perihelion and aphelion and its speed when closest to the sun.
Halley's comet is in an elliptic orbit about the sun. The eccentricity of the orbit is 0.967 and the period is 76 years. The mass of the sun is 2 x 10^30 kg and G=6.67 x 10^-11 Nm^2/kg^2. a) Using this data, determine the distance of Halley's Comet from the sun at perihelion and at aphelion. b) What is the speed of Halle
An observation satellite whose mass m= 4800 kg is to be put into a circular orbit around the earth at a height h= 322000 m above the surface in a precise north-south orbit. See attachment #1. PART a. In this orbit, find the force of gravity exerted by the earth on the satellite. PART b. Find the speed, v, and the period, T,
A satellite at r(0) =10,000 miles from the center of the earth is given an initial velocity v(0) = 20,000 ft/s in the direction shown(getting further away). Determine the magnitude of the transverse component of the satellites velocity when r=20,000mi.(the radius of earth is 3960mi.)
