Force Problems5/6/7

Every few hundred years most of the plants line up on the same side of the Sun. Calculate the total forces on the Earth due to Venus, Jupiter, and Saturn, assuming all four plants are in line. The masses are Mv = 0.815Me, M3=318Me, Ms=95.1Me and their mean distance from the sun are 108,150, 778 and 1430 million km respectively. What fraction of the sun's force on the Earth is this?

Suppose that a binary-star system consist of two stars equal mass. They are observed to be seperated by 360 million km and take 5.7 Earth years to orbit about a point between them. What is the mass of each?

A jet plan travling 1890km/h (525m/s) pulls out of a dive moving in a arc of radius 6.00km. What is the planes acceleration in g's.

A coin is placed 11.0 cm from the axis of a rotating turntable of variable speed. When the speed of the turntable is slowly increased, the coin remains fixed on ther turntable until a rate of 36 rpm is reached and the coin slides off. What is the coefficient of static friction between the coin and truntable?

A car in Indianapolis 500 Accerlerates uniformaly from the pit area, giong from rest to 320km/h in a semicircular arc with a radius of 220m. Determine the tangential and radial acceleration of the car when it is half way through the turn, assuming constant tangential acceleration. If the curve were flat, what would the coefficient of static friction be between the tires and the road to provide this acceleration with no slipping or skidding?
