8. a) Let’s say one galaxy is 4 Mpc away from us and another is
16 Mpc away. If the nearer one moves 1 Mpc, how far will the more
distant galaxy move in the same amount of time? b) How far away
will each of the galaxies in part A be after that amount of time
has passed?

significant figures in unites of m/s? is it moving toward us or
away from us? C=300,000km/s
v=c wavelength observed over= C is 300,000km/s

Stars and galaxies in the distance universe are receding from us
with a speed proportional to their distance away, v = Hr, where H ≈
73 m/s/Mpc is the Hubble constant. (a) What is the value of H in SI
units? SR units? (Mpc = Mega parsec.) (b) Because they are receding
from us, light received from distant stars will be red-shifted. It
is common to define the dimensionless red-shift parameter z as λ/λ0
≡ 1 + z. There is...

A 740-kg two-stage rocket is traveling at a speed of 6.40×10^3
m/s away from Earth when a predesigned explosion separates the
rocket into two sections of equal mass that then move with a speed
of 2.30×10^3 m/s relative to each other along the original line of
motion.
Part A: What is the speed of each section (relative to Earth)
after the explosion?
Part B: What are the direction of each section (relative to
Earth) after the explosion?
a) both away...

14. The Lyman α line (n=2 goes to n=1 in Hydrogen), in a distant
gas cloud, is observed at a wavelength of 212 nm. The Hubble
Expansion of the universe implies that distant objects are moving
away from us with the velocity v = H0d where H0 = 67.7 km/s per Mpc
(Megaparsec). What is the distance to that gas cloud?
