Question

Why
does earth not collapse into the sun and stays in orbit ?

Answer #1

**Solution,**

Right now and it has been since the
formation of our solar system, there are two opposing forces acting
on the planets. First is **gravitational**
**pull** towards Sun in the inward direction, and the
**centrifugal** **force** of their orbit
driving them outwards. If gravity was dominant, the planets would
spiral inward. If their inertia was dominant, the planets would
spiral outward into deep space. The planets are trying to fly out
into deep space, but the gravity of the Sun is pulling them into a
curved orbit. That is the reason, they are not collapsing.

**I hope this would be
helpful, please rate my answer....**

Consider the sun-Earth system with the radiation from
the sun at the Earth’s orbit to be 1360 W/m2. Assume the
Earth’s equilibrium temperature is 255 K. Suppose Earth had a
diameter twice its current diameter. In this case, what would the
Earth’s equilibrium temperature be?

assume that the earth orbits the sun in a circular orbit with
constant speed at a radius of 1.5 x 10^11 m with a period of T =
356 days. Calculate the speed of the earth in its orbit (in
m/s)

A 390.45 kg satellite is geosynchronous orbit around the Earth
stays over the same spot and takes 24 hours to make one
revolution. Given the following data, determine the
satellite

At what location does an artificial Earth satellite in
elliptical orbit have it's greatest speed?
a)Nearest the Earth
b)Farthest from the Earth
c)Between the Earth and the Moon
d)Between the Earth and the Sun

The radius of the earth's orbit around the sun (assumed to be
circular) is 1.50×108km, and the earth travels around this orbit in
365 days.
1- What is the magnitude of the orbital velocity of the earth in
m/s?
2- What is the radial acceleration of the earth toward the
sun?
3- What is the magnitude of the orbital velocity of the planet
Mercury (orbit radius =5.79×107km, orbital period = 88.0 days)?
4- What is the radial acceleration of the...

A planet requires 230 (Earth) days to complete its circular
orbit around its sun, which has a mass of 2.4 x 1030 kg.
What are the planet's (a) orbital radius and
(b) orbital speed?

Why do the planets go around the Sun?
(e.g., why Earth orbits the Sun)?
P.S. I would like that you understand the topic and the basic
physics.

5. Asteroid 101955 Bennu is potentially hazardous – it is in an
Earth-crossing orbit and has a 1 in 2700
chance of hitting Earth about 150 years from now. The OSIRIS-REx
spacecraft is currently in orbit
around Bennu to study it. One of the goals of the OSIRIS-Rex
mission is to get a better idea of Bennu’s
shape and composition, so we can refine our probability of impact
and better determine whether it will
hit us and if so, how...

Given that the mass of the sun and the earth are respectively
1.99x10^30 kg and 5.98x10^24 kg, and that, the distance between
them is 1.50x10^11 m, (a) find the graviational attraction between
the sun and the earth. (b) Taking one year to equal 3.156x10^7 s,
and that the orbit of the earth around the sun is circular, find,
in miles per hour, the speed (considered uniform) of the earth
around the sun.

A satellite is in a circular orbit around the Earth at an
altitude of 3.32 106 m. (a) Find the period of the orbit. (Hint:
Modify Kepler's third law so it is suitable for objects orbiting
the Earth rather than the Sun. The radius of the Earth is 6.38 106
m, and the mass of the Earth is 5.98 1024 kg.) h (b) Find the speed
of the satellite. km/s (c) Find the acceleration of the satellite.
m/s2 toward the...
