Ch3 HW2 (Homework) BRANDON JARROTT FELDKAMP PHYS 2211, section M, Fall 2008 Instructor: Jennifer Curtis Web Assign Current Score: 21 out of 21 Due: Wednesday, September 10, 2008 09:00 AM EDT Description Gravitational force and prediction of motion. Instructions Reading: Sec. 3.4-3.6. In question 5 we lead you through the several steps necessary to calculate the gravitational force as a vector. In question 6 we ask you to do a similar calculation on your own; carry out the same steps as in question 5. The due date for this assignment is past. Your work can be viewed below, but no changes can be made. 1. [MI2 03.X.08.01] 2/2 points The mass of the Sun is 2 10 30 kg, and the mass of Venus is 4.9 10 24 kg. The distance from the Sun to Venus is 1.1 10 11 m. (a) Calculate the magnitude of the gravitational force exerted by the Sun on Venus . 5.426e22 5.43e+22 N (b) Calculate the magnitude of the gravitational force exerted by Venus on the Sun. 5.426e22 5.43e+22 N Solution or Explanation | grav | = G M 1 M 2 /r 2 , therefore the magnitude of the gravitational force is the same for both masses. 2. [MI2 03.RQ.28] 5/5 points (a) Calculate the magnitude of the gravitational force exerted by Venus on a 60 kg human standing on the surface of Venus . (The mass of Venus is 4.9 10 24 kg and its radius is 6.1 10 6 m.) 529.4 529 N Ch3 HW2 http://www.webassign.net/[email protected]/student.pl?n=2008... 1 of 4 11/18/2008 6:19 PM

    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.
