    Using Newton's Universal Law of Gravity calculate the:
    (a) Force of attraction between the MOON and the EARTH [M sub E = 6.0 x 10 ^24 kg, M sub M = 7.4 x 10^22 kg], [R sub orbit = 3.84 x 10^8].

    (b) From part a, calculate the centripetal acceleration of the Moon.

    (c) From part b, determine the angular speed omega of the Moon. [v=rw]

    (d) From part c, determine the orbital period of the Moon [T = 2 pi/omega]
