A satellite moves in a circular orbit around the Earth at a speed of 5.4 km/s. Determine the satellites altitude above the surface of the Earth. Assume the Earth is a homogeneous sphere of radius 6370 km and mass 5.98 × 10 24 kg. The value of the universal gravitat...
An athlete whirls a 6.6 kg hammer tied to the end of a 1.2 m chain in a horizontal circle. The hammer moves at the rate of 0.432 rev/s. What is the centripetal acceleration of the hammer? Assume his arm length is included in the length given for the chain. Answer in units of m...
According to the Guinness Book of World Records (1990 edition, p. 169), the highest rotary speed ever attained was 2010 m/s (4500 mph). The rotating rod was 15 cm (5.9 in) long. Assume the speed quoted is that of the end of the rod. What is the centripetal acceleration of the ...
A 1.62 kg mass attached to a light string rotates on a horizontal, frictionless table. The radius of the circle is 0.986 m, and the string can support a mass of 32.5 kg before breaking. The acceleration of gravity is 9.8 m/s 2 . What maximum speed can the mass have before the ...
We are working on molarity of a solution in my class, and I am a little stumped on how to set the problems up. Here is one question from my homework. How many grams of NaCl are needed to make 575mL of 1.5 M NaCl solution? Thank you in advance :)
We went over this in my physics class yesturday, and I understand most of the concepts of this section of the book, but the examples we were given confuse me. I can find no connection between the numbers of tangential speed and RPM. :(
