Thank you.

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.

The 1540 kg satellite, S-1, orbits the Earth in a circle once
every 8.50 hours. Take the mass of the
Earth to be 5.98x1024 kg and the radius of the Earth to be
6.38x106m. Take G to be 6.67x10-11
Nm2/kg2.
a) How far above the Earth’s surface is the S-1?
b) What is the speed of the satellite in this orbit?
c) What is the total energy of the S-1 as it orbits the
Earth?

A satellite or moon orbits a planet with a period Ps.
At the same time, the satelliteplanet system orbits a star with a
period Pp. Assume that the satellite–planet distance is
smaller than the Hill instability limit, so that this system is
stable. Show that this implies that P?s <
P?p. Assume coplanar circular orbits for simplicity, and
assume that ms < m?p < m?t,
where m?s, m?p, and m?t are the
masses of the satellite, planet, and star, respectively.

A 53.2 kg satellite circles planet Cruton every 5.21 h. The
magnitude of the gravitational force exerted on the satellite by
Cruton is 65.1 N. (a) What is the radius of the
orbit? (b) What is the kinetic energy of the
satellite? (c) What is the mass of planet
Cruton?

A 30.8 kg satellite circles planet Cruton every 8.66 h. The
magnitude of the gravitational force exerted on the satellite by
Cruton is 72.5 N. (a) What is the radius of the
orbit? (b) What is the kinetic energy of the
satellite? (c) What is the mass of planet
Cruton?

Show that if a satellite orbits very near the surface of a planet,
with the period T, the density of thhe planet =3pi/GT^2

If a satellite orbits very near the surface of a planet with
period T, derive an algebraic expression for the density
(mass/volume) of the planet. Express your answer in terms of the
variable T and the gravitational constant G. Part B Estimate the
density of the Earth, given that a satellite near the surface
orbits with a period of about 85 min.

A satellite orbits Earth every 6.0 hours in a circle. What is
the magnitude and direction of the satellite acceleration in m / s
^ 2? (G = 6.67 × 10 ^ (- 11) N · m ^ 2 / kg ^ 2, M_Earth = 5.97 ×
10 ^ 24 kg, R_Earth = 6.37x10 ^ 6 m) and Why

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
