Unformatted text preview: Unit 3 Problem Set Key Ranking Tasks Section: RT I. I wo asteroids with masses of w and 3m exert gravitational forces on each other. A student contends that the forces will be in different directions and of different magnitudes as shown below. Planet A Planet B What's wrong. if anything, with this student's contention? If something is wrong. identify it and explain how to correct it. If this student's contention is correct. explain why. Answer: The forces are attractive so the directions should be reversed and the forces should be equal as required by Newton's Third Law. Planet A Planet B RT 2. Three objects each with a mass of M exert gravitational forces on each other, Which of the arrows below shows the direction of the net force on mass IT B (iv) (v) None of these OC Explain your reasoning Answer (a) vector addition of the force ou B by A (which is directed horizontally to the left) and the force on \$ by C (which is directed toward the bottom of the page or down) results in a force 45&quot; down to the left RT 3, Object A has twice the mass of Object B. Identify the pair of force vectors (the arrows) that correctly compare the gravitational force exerted on A by B with the gravitational force exerted on B by A. Gravitational force on A by B Gravitational force on B by A (b) (d) (el Explain your reasoning. Answer: (by The forces must be attractive, because the gravitational force is always an attractive force. Newton's Third Law requires that the magnitude of the forces be the same....

### What students are saying

• 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.
