L9: 23 September: Ch. 3, Sec. 3, 5, 6 L10: 28 September Ch.3 Sec. 7, 8 Review session for Ch. 2: 3:30-6, Rm202 30 September: Chapter Test #2 on Chapter 2 Reading Tips for September 23 : What is a perturbed circular orbit? When are perturbed circular orbits closed? What is the Equation of the Orbit? Reading Tips for September 28 : What is the Kepler problem? What types of orbits are possible for the Kepler problem? For the Kepler problem, what geometric shape does a stable perturbed circular orbit have? Homework Set #5: Due Tuesday, 28 September (1) [This problem is similar to Goldstein, Chap.2, Problem 4 (# 6 in 3 rd ed.).] Consider the brachistochrone problem of a particle of mass m moving in a frictionless tunnel inside a spherical earth of uniform density and radius R . The gravitational potential energy V of the particle inside the tunnel is V = -(½) ( mMG/R )(3- u 2 ), where M is the earth’s mass, G is the
