Copyright © 2005 Center for Astronomy Education (CAE) University of Arizona Astronomy Ranking Task: Gravity Exercise #5 Description: The figures below (A – D) each show a large central asteroid along with two other asteroids located to the right and left of the central asteroid. The masses (m) of the asteroids are expressed in arbitrary units, and the distance (d) from the center asteroid is also expressed in arbitrary units. d = 3 m = 3 C d = 2 m = 5 m = 10 d = 3 m = 3 d = 3 m = 5 m = 10 d = 3 m = 3 B d = 3 m = 5 m = 10 d = 3 m = 10 D d = 3 m = 5 m = 10 A

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
