PHYS 1120 Exam 1 NAME:______________________________ Spring 2008 E1.2 First Midterm Circle the closest answer and Bubble in questions 1-15 ON YOUR BUBBLE SHEET! The gravitational force that a spherical body of mass M 1 feels from a second spherical body of mass M 2 when their centers are separated by a distance, r , is attractive, and has a magnitude given by: This force is very similar in form to Coulomb’s Law for the force between static point charges. 1. We can ignore static electric forces when calculating the motion of planets around the Sun because: A) electric forces drop to nearly zero much more quickly with distance than gravity forces. B) gravity forces are intrinsically larger than electric forces. C) no, electric forces are actually an important part of understanding planetary orbits. D) planets and the Sun are electrically neutral, so the electric forces are very small....
