Question

The distance from the star S to the planet X is approximately 149,000,000 km.

The distance from S to the planet Y is approximately 57,860,000 km.

The elongation angle is the angle formed between the line of sight from X to S and the line of sight from X to Y.

Suppose that the elongation angle is 13 degrees.

Use this information to find the possible distances between X and Y.

A) The larger distance from X to Y is _____ Km. (Do not round until the final answer. Then round to one decimal place as needed.)

B) The smaller distance from X to Y is ______ Km. (Do not round until the final answer. Then round to one decimal place as needed.)

Answer #1

A satellite of mass 1000 kg orbits the Planet X at a distance of
6000 km above its surface. The satellite circles Planet X
once every 7 hours. Determine the following quantities:
The orbital velocity of the satellite in m/s about planet
X;
The acceleration of the satellite;
The Force that Planet X applies on the satellite; and
the Mass of Planet X.

(a) The distance to a star is approximately 7.25 ✕ 1018 m. If
this star were to burn out today, in how many years would we see it
disappear? years (b) How long does it take sunlight to reach Earth?
minutes (c) How long does it take for a microwave radar signal to
travel from Earth to the Moon and back? (The distance from Earth to
the Moon is 3.84 ✕ 105 km.)

During a parasailing ride, the boat is traveling at a constant
38 km/hr with a 200-m long tow line. At the instant shown, the
angle between the line and the water is 30º and is increasing at a
constant rate of 2º/s. Determine the velocity and acceleration of
the parasailer at this instant.(Round the velocity and acceleration
to three decimal places and the angles to one decimal place.)
The velocity of the parasailer and angle
The acceleration of the parasailer...

A data set lists earthquake depths. The summary statistics
N=500, x =4.39 km, S=4.31 km. Use a 0.01 significance level to
test the claim of a seismologist that these earthquakes are from a
population with a mean equal to 4.00 Assume that a simple random
sample has been selected. Identify the null and alternative
hypotheses, test statistic, P-value, and state the final
conclusion that addresses the original claim.
Determine the test statistic.

On planet X (gX = 20.00 m/s2), without atmosphere, a projectile
has been fired from the ground, at the angle θ0 and initial speed
v0. After time t, the projectile has travelled horizontal distance
x, and its height is h ( the values of t=0.40, x=5.60, and y=2.93).
Find θ0 and v0.
