P207 - Fall 2007 Solutions Assignment 8 1. Chapter 13, Problem 37 (a) The escape velocity v = 2GM/R. The gravitational acceleration at the surface is g = GM/R2 . Therefore, v = 2Rg = 2(500 103 m)(3 m/s2 ) = 1732 m/s. (b) The energy of a particle at
P207 - Fall 2007 Solutions Assignment 7 1. Chapter 8, Problem 28 (a) The total mechanical energy of the box is the sum of the potential energy of the spring, the potential energy of gravity and the kinetic energy. Let x = 0 when the spring is in the
P207 - Fall 2007 Solutions Assignment 6 1. Chapter 7, Problem 13 (a) The work done by the forces is x Fx + y Fy and we know that y = 0 so the forces in the y-direction make no contribution. In the x-direction Fx = |F2 | cos - |F1 | = (9 N) cos 60 -
