A satellite is in circular orbit around an unknown planet. A
second, different, satellite also travels in a circular orbit
around this same planet, but with an orbital radius four times
larger than the first satellite. Sue-Bob, the bad physics student,
says: "The gravitational force of the planet depends inversely on
the orbital radius squared. Since the second satellite's orbitai
radius is four times that of the first satellite, the second
satellite experiences on-sixteenth the gravitational force that is
exerted...

A planet has a circular orbit around a star of mass M. However,
the star just explodes, projecting its outer envelope at a much
greater speed than that of the planet in orbit. Its lost mass can,
therefore, be considered as having been lost instantaneously.
What remains of the star has a mass M ', always greater than
that of the planet. What is the eccentricity of the planet's orbit
after the explosion? You can neglect the force exerted on...

Put a satellite in circular orbit about a planetX at
an altitude of one planet X radius above the surface of the planet
X. you want to change the orbit to an altitude of 2 planet X radii
about the surface of planet X. How much work does the satellites
engine have to do for this change?
Given:
Planet X:
no atmosphere
mass- 4*10^24 kg
radius 6*10^6 m
satellite
mass 700kg

A satellite of mass m = 2.00 ×103 kg is launched into a
circular orbit of orbital period T = 4.00 hours. Newton's
gravitational constant is G = 6.67 ×10−11 N∙m2/kg2, and
the mass and radius of the Earth are respectively M⨁ =
5.97 ×1024 kg and r⨁ = 6.37 ×106 m. Answer the following
questions.
What is the total mechanical energy (kinetic energy + potential
energy) of the satellite in orbit? Take the gravitational potential
energy of the satellite...

Imagine a small satellite of mass m that describes a circular
orbit. If at a point in the orbit it receives a small radial
impulse when applying its motors very briefly (ignore the loss of
mass), then the orbit changes a small distance δ, such that the
satellite begins to oscillate with respect to its orbit r_0, it is
say r (t) = r0 + δ (t), (δ (t) ≪r0)
You may recall from your mechanical course that the
gravitational...
