Physics
If you suddenly multiplied the mass of Earth by a factor of 4, how would the period of a satellite change, if the radius of its orbit did not change? 4 times as long 1/4 as long 2 times as long 1/2 as long Unchanged

Physics
A satellite sitting on the ground has a weight of 5000 N. When it is placed in orbit 500 km above the surface of the Earth (which has a radius of 6380 km), which choice best describes its weight? Very small but slightly greater than zero. Zero. Still 5000 N. Slightly less than...

Physics
A massless rope passes over a massless, frictionless pulley. One end of the rope is connected to box 2, and the other end is connected to box 3. The weights of the three boxes are W1 = 50.7 N, W2 = 32.1 N, and W3 = 28.6 N. Determine the magnitude of the normal force that the t...

Physics
A train consists of 50 cars, each of which has a mass of 7.2 × 103 kg. The train has an acceleration of +7.2 × 10-2 m/s2. Ignore friction and determine the tension in the coupling (a) between the 30th and 31st cars and (b) between the 49th and 50th cars.

Physics
A man seeking to set a world record wants to tow a 110000-kg airplane along a runway by pulling horizontally on a cable attached to the airplane. The mass of the man is 70 kg, and the coefficient of static friction between his shoes and the runway is 0.76. What is the greatest...

Physics
The helicopter in the drawing is moving horizontally to the right at a constant velocity. The weight of the helicopter is W=59900 N. The lift force L generated by the rotating blade makes an angle of 21.0° with respect to the vertical. (a) What is the magnitude of the lif...

Physics
A woman stands on a scale in a moving elevator. Her mass is 56.0 kg, and the combined mass of the elevator and scale is an additional 809 kg. Starting from rest, the elevator accelerates upward. During the acceleration, the hoisting cable applies a force of 9030 N. What does t...

Physics
What is the period of Earth's (nearly) circular motion around the Sun? (2*pi*r)/T 1 year (1 year)/(2*pi) (2*pi)/(1 year) 2*pi*(1 year)

Physics
The space probe Deep Space 1 was launched on October 24, 1998. Its mass was 474 kg. The goal of the mission was to test a new kind of engine called an ion propulsion drive. This engine generated only a weak thrust, but it could do so over long periods of time with the consumpt...

Physics
You are in a hot-air balloon that, relative to the ground, has a velocity of 6.14 m/s in a direction due east. You see a hawk moving directly away from the balloon in a direction due north. The speed of the hawk relative to you is 2.44 m/s. What are (a) the magnitude and (b) d...
