Starting with GM r T 2 3 2 π = (Eq.(12.14)), v r T 2 π = , and r GM v = (Eq.(12.12)) find the velocity and period of the initial orbit: s, m 10 672 . 7 m 10 776 . 6 ) kg 10 97 . 5 )( kg m N 10 673 . 6 ( 3 6 24 2 2 11 × = × × × = - v and 5 . 92 s 5549 2 = = = v r T π min. We then can use the two derived equations to approximate the s. m 05662 . and s, 1228 . 0 . and , and ) s 5549 ( ) m 100 ( s m 10 672 . 7 m) 100 ( 3 r 3 3 = = = = = = = × π π T r π T r π v π v T v T v T Before the cable breaks, the shuttle will have traveled a distance d, d 22 s 7 . 1324 ) s m 05662 (. ) m 75 ( So, m. 75 ) m 100 ( ) m 125 ( 2 2 = = = - = min. It will take 22 minutes for the cable to break. c) The ISS is moving faster than the space shuttle, so the total angle it covers in an orbit must be π 2 radians more than the angle that the space shuttle covers before they are

    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.
