Question

uring a solar eclipse, the Moon is positioned directly between Earth and the Sun.

The masses of the Sun, Earth, and the Moon are 1.99×1030 kg,1.99×1030 kg, 5.98×1024 kg,5.98×1024 kg, and 7.36×1022 kg,7.36×1022 kg, respectively. The Moon's mean distance from Earth is 3.84×108 m,3.84×108 m, and Earth's mean distance from the Sun is 1.50×1011 m.1.50×1011 m. The gravitational constant is G=6.67×10−11 N⋅m2/kg2.G=6.67×10−11 N·m2/kg2.

Find the magnitude FF of the net gravitational force acting on the Moon during the solar eclipse due to both Earth and the Sun.

Answer #1

a. Determine the acceleration of the Earth about the sun.
(GIVEN: Msun = 1.99 x 1030 kg and Earth-sun distance = 1.50 x 1011
m)
b. Determine the acceleration of the moon about the Earth.
(GIVEN: MEarth = 5.98 x 1024 kg and Earth-moon distance = 3.84 x
108 m)

Calculate, using Newton's law of gravity, the size of the force
of attraction between the earth and a mass of 2.0 kg on the earth.
Data: Distance to the center of earth from the surface = 6370 km.
Mass of earth = 5.98·1024kg. Gravitational constant G = 6.67·10-11
Nm2/kg2.

On the way to the moon, the Apollo astronauts reach a point
where the Moon’s gravitational pull is stronger than that of
Earth’s. Find the distance of this point from the center of the
Earth. The masses of the Earth and the Moon are 5.98 × 1024 kg and
7.36 × 1022 kg, respectively, and the distance from the Earth to
the Moon is 3.84 × 108 m. Answer in units of m.
b) What would the acceleration of the...

Calculate the force of gravity between the Earth and the Moon.
The mass of the Earth is 6.0 x 1024 kg and the mass of
the Moon is 7.4 x 1022 kg. The average distance between
the Earth and the Moon is 3.8 x 108 m. (G = 6.67 x 10-11
Nm2/kg2 ) Show your
work.

During a solar eclipse, the moon, earth, and sun all lie on the
same line, with the moon between the earth and sun. Define your
coordinates so that the earth and moon lie at greater x values than
the sun. For each force, give the correct sign as well as the
magnitude.
