Unformatted text preview: Problem 1 (25 Points) In a recent lab you wrote a program to predict the motion of a spacecraft interacting with the Earth. The
initial lines of your code were similar to the program on the following page. (a 7pts) Add the missing statements needed to compute the kinetic and potential energy of the spacecraft

separation, if the spacecraft has a velocity below the escape velocity and moves in an elliptical orbit. (c 6pts) Draw the kinetic, potential and total energy of the spacecraftEarth system as a function of
separation, if the spacecraft velocity is above the escape velocity. (d 6pts) Replace the Earth and the spacecraft by two equally charged objects interacting only through an
electric force. Assume that the two—particle system has zero kinetic energy when they are close to each
other and draw the kinetic, potential and total energy of this system as a function of separation. Problem 2 (25 Points) A box contains machinery that can rotate. The total
mass of the box plus the machinery is M. A string
wound around the machinery comes out through a small hole in the top of the box. Initially the box d2,
sits on the ground, and the machinery inside is not rotating (left diagram). Then you pull upwards on +
the string with a force of constant magnitude F. At dli an instant when you have pulled a length of string d2
out of the box, the box has risen a distance d1, and
the machinery inside is rotating. (a 10pts) Using the (CM) Point Particle System ﬁnd the speed of the box at the instant shown in the right
