Question

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 10^{23} kg
and a radius of 2.58 x 10^{6} m. Calculate the height of
the object above the surface of planet X. G = 6.67 x
10^{-11} Nm^{2}/kg^{2}.

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}
Nm^{2}/kg^{2}.

experss your answer with the correct units

Answer #1

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

A satellite (mass 2400 kg) is orbiting the Earth, with a speed
of 7500 m/s. What is the height of this satellite above the Earth's
surface?
Note: you may find the following information useful. The
universal gravitational constant is 6.67x10-11
Nm2/kg2 ; the mass of the Earth is 6.0 x
1024 kg; the radius of the Earth is 6.4 x 103
km.
can you please show work if you can? I APPRECIATE YOU!!!

(TWO PARTS) The small spherical planet called "Glob" has a mass

A satellite of mass 1525 kg is in circular orbit around Earth.
The radius of the orbit of the satellite is equal to 1.5 times the
radius of Earth (RE = 6.378*106 m, ME = 5.98*1024 kg, G =
6.67*10-11 Nm2/kg2). (a) Find the orbital period of the satellite?
(b) Find the orbital (tangential) velocity of the
satellite. (c) Find the total energy of the
satellite?

1.Zero, a hypothetical planet, has a mass of 4.9 x 1023 kg, a
radius of 3.3 x 106 m, and no atmosphere. A 10 kg space probe is to
be launched vertically from its surface. (a) If the probe is
launched with an initial kinetic energy of 5.0 x 107 J, what will
be its kinetic energy when it is 4.0 x 106 m from the center of
Zero? (b) If the probe is to achieve a maximum distance of...
