Physics 10 Midterm exam 1 Part A – Essay Questions October 3, 2003 Last name____________________ First name___________________SID___________ Essay questions (20 pts): pick one and only one to answer. Write a page or two (or whatever is appropriate) on this sheet. Cover the important points in a clear and concise manner – as if you have only a few minutes to tell the President, Mayor, or your roommate, what that person needs to know. Clear, effective writing is important. 1. Describe the physics behind satellites that orbit the earth. Be sure to relate LEO, GEO, and the moon in your discussion, and note any practical uses for each kind of artificial satellite. 2. Suppose it is announced that a laboratory in downtown Berkeley accidentally released some radioactive gases into the environment, and this would cause an exposure to people who worked nearby of about 1 millirem (0.001 rem) over the next year for each person who works there. Assume 1000 people work there. The mayor of Berkeley asks you to speak to the public to alert them to the risks they face. What would you say? Give numbers when appropriate.
