Phys 100 Fall 2011 Concepts of Physics: Homework 1 Due: 31 August 2011 In order to receive full credit, you must show all work, calculations and provide complete reasons and explanations for your solutions. 1 Hobson, Physics: Concepts and Connections, 5ed Ch. 1 Conceptual Exercise 4, page 31. A complete solution includes a description of which phenomenon associated with the planet you observe, what the results of this observation could be, and how these results support or disprove the possibility of simple circular motion. 2 Hobson, Physics: Concepts and Connections, 5ed Ch. 1 Conceptual Exercise 8, page 31. 3 Hobson, Physics: Concepts and Connections, 5ed Ch. 1 Conceptual Exercise 10, page 31. 4 Indirect vs. direct evidence for circular planetary motion. Consider the motion of the planet Saturn. How do we know that it moves in a nearly circular orbit around the sun rather than about the earth?
