1 Objective Writing very large and very small numbers in standard form

2 DATA Very large numbers such as: Are not very practical to use in calculations so we can rewrite it like this:

3 x 10 9 Number between 1 and 10 Power of 10

4 Write all of the distances from the sun in standard form

5

6 Write all of the planets masses as normal numbers

7

8 The gravitational pull of each of the planets in the Solar System is different and this will affect the velocity that a spacecraft would need to be travelling to leave the planets surface. This speed, known as the ESCAPE VELOCITY, depends on both the radius of the planet, and its mass G = Gravitational Constant M = Mass of the planet (in kg) R = Radius of the planet (in m)

9 DATA Very small numbers such as: Are not very practical to use in calculations so we can rewrite it like this:

10 x Number between 1 and 10 Power of 10

11 Calculate the escape velocity for each of the planets

12 G =
