13.1. Model: Model the sun (s) and the earth (e) as spherical masses. Due to the large difference between your size and mass and that of either the sun or the earth, a human body can be treated as a particle. Solve: sy sonyou 2 se GM M F r = and ey e on you 2 e GM M F r = Dividing these two equations gives 2 2 30 6 s on y 4 24 11 e on y e s e 1.99 10 kg 6.37 10 m 6.00 10 5.98 10 kg 1.50 10 m F Mr FM r ⎛⎞ ×× == = × ⎜⎟ ⎝⎠

13.2. Model: Assume the two lead balls are spherical masses. Solve: (a) 11 2 2 9 12 1on 2 2on1 22 (6.67 10 N m /kg )(10 kg)(0.100 kg) 6.7 10 N (0.10 m) Gm m FF r ×⋅ == = = × (b) The ratio of the above gravitational force to the gravitational force on the 100 g ball is 9 9 2 6.67 10 N 6.81 10 (0.100 kg)(9.8 m/s ) × Assess: The answer in part (b) shows the smallness of the gravitational force between two lead balls separated by 10 cm compared to the gravitational force on the 100 g ball.
13.3. Model: Model the sun (s), the moon (m), and the earth (e) as spherical masses. Solve: sm s on m 2 GM M F r = and em e on m 2 GM M F r = Dividing the two equations and using the astronomical data from Table 13.2, 2 2 30 8 s on m s e m 24 11 e on m e s m 1.99 10 kg 3.84 10 m 2.18 5.98 10 kg 1.50 10 m FM r r ⎛⎞ ×× == = ⎜⎟ ⎝⎠ Note that the sun-moon distance is not noticeably different from the tabulated sun-earth distance.

13.6. Model: Model the earth (e) as a sphere. Visualize: The space shuttle or a 1.0 kg sphere (s) in the space shuttle is 66 es 6.37 10 m 0.30 10 m Rr + = 6 6.67 10 m × away from the center of the earth. Solve: (a) 11 2 2 24 e on s 26 2 (6.67 10 N m /kg )(5.98 10 kg)(1.0 kg) 9.0 N () ( 6 . 6 7 1 0 m ) GM M F ×⋅ × == = (b) Because the sphere and the shuttle are in free fall with the same acceleration around the earth, there cannot be any relative motion between them. That is why the sphere floats around inside the space shuttle.
13.7. Model: Model the sun (s) as a spherical mass. Solve: (a) 11 2 2 30 2 s sun surface 28 2 s (6.67 10 N m /kg )(1.99 10 kg) 274 m/s (6.96 10 m) GM g R ×⋅ × == = × (b) 11 2 2 30 32 s sun at earth 21 1 2 se (6.67 10 5.90 10 m/s (1.50 10 m) GM g r × = × ×
