HOMEWORK #1 Due: 3 rd – 9 th Sept 2008 4. EXCEL Problems (adapted from problems 2.10 and 2.11 (pg 52) of textbook) Newton’s law of gravitation tells us that the force exerted by one particle on another is: with the following quantities defined as: G - universal gravitational constant is given as G = 6.673 x 10 -11 Nm 2 /kg 2 m 1 , m 2 - mass of each particle respectively r - distance between the 2 particles Using EXCEL, calculate a table of gravitational forces between the earth (mass = 6 x 10 24 Kg) and the moon (mass = 7.4 x 10 22 Kg) for 10 equally spaced distances from 3.8 x 10 8 m to 4.0 x 10 8 m. a. Download the probtemplate.xlsx file from blackboard. b. Under the Input Section, assign G, m 1 , and m 2 to cells A7 through A10 (labels and units) and B7 through B10 (values). c. Under the Calculation Section, assign the distance values to cells D7 through D18 (include a heading with units). Calculate the forces for the range of distances in cells E7 through D18 (include a heading with units) using cell addressing. d. Copy your force calculation results to column G under the Output Section. e. Show your equations by pressing Ctrl + ` (control + the grave key located to the left of

    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.
