Question

A spacecraft lands on a new planet of mass 2.5 x 10^{24}
kg and radius 5100 km. If an object is dropped 3.22 meters above
the surface of the planet how long will it take reach the
surface?

Answer #1

Find the acceleration due to gravity at the surface of the planet and use equation of kinematics for vertical motion to find the required time to reach surface

Consider a spherical, homogeneous planet with a radius of
rp=3985 km and a mass of mp=8.97×1024 kg. A spherical object with a
radius of r0=9.21 m and mass m0=868 kg approaches the planet.
Part 1) When the object is 5.33×109 km away from the planet,
what is the magnitude of the force the planet exerts on the object?
F= N
Part 2) When the object is 8.10 m above the surface of the
planet, what is the magnitude of the...

A planet of mass ?=4.55×1024 kg is orbiting in a circular path a
star of mass ?=8.55×1029 kg . The radius of the orbit is ?=1.75×107
km . What is the orbital period (in Earth days) of the planet
?planet ?

A spacecraft is in orbit around a planet. The radius of the
orbit is 2.9 times the radius of the planet (which is R = 71451
km). The gravitational field at the surface of the planet is 21
N/kg. What is the period of the spacecraft's orbit?

A spacecraft of mass 2 · 10^3 kg is in a circular orbit of
radius R = 10^4 km around a planet. The speed of the spacecraft on
the orbit is 20km/s. Determine the mass of the planet and the
energy of the spacecraft. Submit your answer in the following
form:
• Give your numerical answer for the mass of the planet.
• Give your numerical answer for the energy of the
spacecraft.

Suppose a 1300-kg Tesla ends up orbiting some faraway planet of
mass 2.8 * 1024 kg. If that planet's radius is 6,200 km,
and if the Tesla arrived with a velocity relative to the planet of
5,200 m/s, and if the orbit were circular, how high above the
planet's ground, in kilometers, would the Tesla orbit?
use G = 6.674*10-11 Nm2/kg2

An object with a mass of 500 kg is orbiting planet X with a
speed of 1540 m/s. Planet X has a mass of 1.35 x 1023 kg
and a radius of 2.58 x 106 m. Calculate the height of
the object above the surface of planet X. G = 6.67 x
10-11 Nm2/kg2.
express your answer with the appropriate units.
What is the gravitational force experienced by the object due to
planet X. G = 6.67 x 10-11
Nm2/kg2....

1)
Two celestial objects are in space: one with a mass of 8.22 x 109
kg and one with a mass of 1.38 x 108 kg. If they are separated by a
distance of 1.43 km, what is the magnitude of the force of
attraction (in newtons) between the objects? Round to the nearest
integer.
2) If the planet Mars has a radius of 3.396 x 106 meters and a
