10/10/2013PHY 113 C Fall 2013-- Lecture 1315 Gravity on the surface of the moon Gravity on the surface of mars

10/10/2013PHY 113 C Fall 2013-- Lecture 1316 iclicker question: In estimating the gravitational acceleration near the surfaces of the Earth, Moon, or Mars, we used the full mass of the planet or moon, ignoring the shape of its distribution. This is a reasonable approximation because: A.The special form of the gravitational force law makes this mathematically correct. B.Most of the mass of the planets/moon is actually concentrated near the center of the planet/moon. C.It is a very crude approximation.

10/10/2013PHY 113 C Fall 2013-- Lecture 1317 Stable circular orbit of two gravitationally attracted objects (such as the moon and the Earth) R EM F a v

10/10/2013PHY 113 C Fall 2013-- Lecture 1318 iclicker question: In the previous discussion, we saw how the moon orbits the Earth in a stable circular orbit because of the radial gravitational attraction of the moon and Newton’s second law: F=ma, where a is the centripetal acceleration of the moon in its circular orbit. Is this the same mechanism which stabilizes airplane travel? Assume that a typical cruising altitude of an airplane is 11 km above the Earth’s surface and that the Earth’s radius is 6370 km. (a) Yes (b) No

10/10/2013PHY 113 C Fall 2013-- Lecture 1321 More details If we examine the circular orbit more carefully, we find that the correct analysis is that the stable circular orbit of two gravitationally attracted masses is about their center of mass. m1m1 R2R2 R1R1 m2m2

10/10/2013PHY 113 C Fall 2013-- Lecture 1327 What is the physical basis for stable circular orbits? 1.Newton’s second law? 2.Conservation of angular momentum? L = (const) Note: Gravitational forces exert no torque
