Question

How much greater is the sun's gravitational force on jupiter compared with the sun's gravitational force on the earth? Use the following information: Mass of sun = 2*10^30kg. Mass of jupiter = 1.9*10^27kg. mass of earth = 6*10^-11. Distance between the sun and the earth =1.5*10^11m. Distance between sun and jupiter = 7.8*10^11m

How much greater is the Sun’s gravitational force on Jupiter
compared with the Sun’s gravitational force on the Earth? Use the
following information: mass of the Sun = 2.0 x 1030 kg, mass of
Jupiter = 1.9 x 1027 kg, mass of Earth = 6.0 x 1024 kg; G = 6.67 x
10-11 m3kg-1s-2; distance between Sun and Earth = 1.5 x 1011 m;
distance between Sun and Jupiter = 7.8 x 1011 m. (Round your answer
to one decimal...

What is the center of mass of our solar system? For this
problem, we can make a first order approximation that the center of
mass of our solar system is roughly the center of mass between our
sun and the planet Jupiter (since Jupiter has more mass than all
the other planets.) Is the center of mass inside the sun? The
distance between the sun and Jupiter is 7.78 x 10^11m. The mass of
the sun is 1.99 x 10^30kg...

Jupiter is 5.2 AU from the Sun. Based upon distance alone
(i.e, if you were to place an Earth-mass planet at
Jupiter's distance from the Sun), what would be the gravitational
force between the Earth-mass planet at 5.2 AU and the Sun in units
of "Earth-pulls?"

Astronomers are constantly discovering new planets orbiting
nearby stars. In the following scenario, compare the gravitational
force between the planet and its star to the gravitational force
between the Earth and the Sun and enter your result as a decimal
with no units. (For instance, if the gravitational force between
the planet and the star is 1/4 the gravitational force between the
Earth and the Sun, enter 0.250)

A particle in the solar system is under the combined influence
of the Sun's gravitational attraction and the radiation force due
to the Sun's rays. Assume that the particle is a sphere of density
830 kg/m3 and that all the incident light is absorbed.
If its radius is less than some critical radius R, the
particle will be blown out of the solar system. Calculate this
critical radius. Note that the total radiation power of the Sun is
3.90 ×...

A particle in the solar system is under the combined influence
of the Sun's gravitational attraction and the radiation force due
to the Sun's rays. Assume that the particle is a sphere of density
1100 kg/m3 and that all the incident light is absorbed. If its
radius is less than some critical radius R, the particle will be
blown out of the solar system. Calculate this critical radius. Note
that the total radiation power of the Sun is 3.90 ×...

A satellite of mass 3.00 x 104 kg is placed in orbit
around Jupiter. The mass of Jupiter is 2.90 x 1027 kg.
The distance between the satellite and the centre of Jupiter is
9.24 x 107 m.
Determine the force of gravitational attraction between the
satellite and Jupiter.
One of the moons of Jupiter is Io. The distance between the
centre of Jupiter and the centre of Io is 5.22 x 108 m.
