Physics Formulas for Final Exam (May ’96) Gravitational Acceleration: a GM r g = 2 Gravitational Potential Energy U GMm r = - Circular Orbit: K U = 2 Energy U K = = - 2 Energy in Planetary Motion When a planet or satellite with mass m moves in a circular orbit with radius r , its potential energy U and kinetic energy K are given by U GMm r = - K GMm r = 2 The total mechanical energy E = K + U is E GMm a = - 2 in which the radius r has been replaced with the semimajor axis a to indicate that this expression for total energy is also valid for more general elliptical orbits.

    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.
