Q12.1 The mass of the Moon is 1/81 of the mass of the Earth. Compared to the gravitational force that the Earth exerts on the Moon, the gravitational force that the Moon exerts on the Earth is = times greater 2. 81 times greater 3. equally strong 4. 1/81 as great 5. (1/81)2 = 1/6561 as great

A12.1 The mass of the Moon is 1/81 of the mass of the Earth. Compared to the gravitational force that the Earth exerts on the Moon, the gravitational force that the Moon exerts on the Earth is = times greater 2. 81 times greater 3. equally strong 4. 1/81 as great 5. (1/81)2 = 1/6561 as great

Q12.2 The planet Saturn has 100 times the mass of the Earth and is 10 times more distant from the Sun than the Earth is. Compared to the Earth’s acceleration as it orbits the Sun, the acceleration of Saturn as it orbits the Sun is times greater 2. 10 times greater 3. the same 4. 1/10 as great 5. 1/100 as great

Q12.4 A satellite is moving around the Earth in a circular orbit. Over the course of an orbit, the Earth’s gravitational force 1. does positive work on the satellite 2. does negative work on the satellite 3. does positive work on the satellite during part of the orbit and negative work on the satellite during the other part 4. does zero work on the satellite at all points in the orbit
