Chapter 13 409 P13.70 (a) The gravitational force exerted on m 2 by the Earth (mass m 1 ) accelerates m 2 according to: mg Gm m r 22 12 2 = . The equal magnitude force exerted on the Earth by m 2 produces negligible acceleration of the Earth. The acceleration of relative approach is then g Gm r 2 1 2 11 24 7 2 6 67 10 5 98 10 120 10 277 == ×⋅ × × = .. . . Nm kg kg m ms 2 ej e j . (b) Again, m 2 accelerates toward the center of mass with g 2 = . m s 2 . Now the Earth accelerates toward m 2 with an acceleration given as Gm m r g Gm r 11 2 1 2 2 11 24 7 2 6 67 10 2 00 10 0926 = × × = . . m 2 e j The distance between the masses closes with relative acceleration of gg g rel 2 =+= + = 370 ... .
