Answer #1

A satellite of mass 1000 kg orbits the Planet X at a distance of
6000 km above its surface. The satellite circles Planet X
once every 7 hours. Determine the following quantities:
The orbital velocity of the satellite in m/s about planet
X;
The acceleration of the satellite;
The Force that Planet X applies on the satellite; and
the Mass of Planet X.

Problem 1: An air-boat.
Rangers at the everglades national park, ride an air-boat, the
mass of the air boat plus the rangers is 500 kg. The blades of the
boat push on the air with 1000N, while moving the rangers
experience an air resistance force of 200N directed opposite to the
direction of motion, and the boat a water resistance of 250N. They
move in straight line for 20s. Please complete the following
tasks:
Draw the free-body diagram showing all...

1.) The planet Alpha orbits the star Alminar at the distance
??=8.8×10^7 km in a circular orbit with period ??=1.70×10^7 s.The
mass of planet Alpha is ??=3.4×10^24 kg.
(a) What is the acceleration of the planet Alpha?
(b) A second planet, Beta, orbits Alminar in a circular orbit at
radius ??=1.42×10^8 km. What is the orbital period of planet
Beta?

1. A satellite orbits a planet. The distance between the
satellite and the center of the planet is r. The time it takes the
satellite to complete one orbit is T.
a. Find the speed of the satellite in its orbit, in terms of the
quantities given above. Do not use the law of gravity in part
a.!
b. Find the acceleration of the satellite in its orbit, in terms
of the quantities given above. Do not use the law...

A satellite orbits a 5.37E26 kg planet once every 22.6 days.
What is the velocity of the satellite?

Mars has two moons, Phobos and Deimos. Phobos orbits at 6000 km
above the surface of Mars, closer than any other moon in the solar
system, once every 7.66 hours. (Radius of Mars = 3389 km). You want
to put an artificial satellite (the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter in
this case) into a circular orbit at a height of 300 km above the
surface of Mars. This process, called orbital insertion, requires
the orbiter to speed up or slow down to...

A satellite orbits the Earth uniformly in a circular orbit with
a velocity of magnitude 4.00 km/s. Use Newton's gravitation force
as the force in Newton's Law of Acceleration, using also the
centripetal acceleration . Solve for radius r of the satellite's
orbit in terms of v . (a) Find then the altitude of the satellite
above the surface of the Earth. Earth's mass and radius are 5.9810
kg and 6.3810 km. (b) Find the time it takes the satellite...

Consider a 355kg satellite in a circular orbit at a distance of
3.07 x 104 km above the Earth’s surface. What is the
minimum amount of work the satellite’s thrusters must do to raise
the satellite to a geosynchronous orbit? Geosynchronous orbits
occur at approximately 3.60 x 104 km above the Earth’s
surface. The radius of the Earth and the mass of the Earth are
RE = 6.37 x 103 km and ME = 5.97 x
1024 kg respectively. The...

Satellite X, a small moon of Planet X, has an orbital period of
1.77 days and an orbital radius of 4.22 x 10^5 km.
a) What is the mass of Planet X?
b) Assume that Satellite X moves in a circular orbit. What is
its orbital speed?
c) A small mass of m = 2.5 kg is dropped from rest from the
moon. What is its speed when it reaches the surface of Planet X,
whose radius is 71,492 km?...

1. Planet X belongs to the planetary system of a distant star.
The radius of Planet X was determined through direct observation by
the exploration ship to be Rx = 7.22X103 km. An
exploration team sent to the surface measured the gravitational
acceleration to be gx = 10.6 m/s2.
(a) Use the information given about Planet X to find its mass,
Mx. (Explain every step)
(b) The exploration ship orbits Planet X at an altitude of
1.70X10^3 km. What is...
