Four point masses are at the corners of a square whose side is 20 cm long (see Fig 3). What is the magnitude of the net gravitational force on a point mass m5 = 2.5 kg located at the center of the square?
An astronaut drops an object from rest (relative to the planet) on a planet alpha (having the same radius as of earth) from an altitude of one radius above the surface. When the object hits the surface its speed is 3.98 times what it would be if the same experiment were carrie...
Find the acceleration due to gravity on a planet whose mass is four times the mass of Earth and whose radius is half the radius of Earth (g is the acceleration due to gravity on Earth).
