6 10/14/2013PHY 113 C Fall Lecture 146 From Webassign Assignment #12: How much work is done by the Moon's gravitational field as a 1090 kg meteor comes in from outer space and impacts on the Moon's surface? RMRM iclicker question A.W>0 B.W<0

7 10/14/2013PHY 113 C Fall Lecture 147 From Webassign Assignment #12: A space probe is fired as a projectile from the Earth's surface with an initial speed of m/s. What will its speed be when it is very far from the Earth? Ignore atmospheric friction and the rotation of the Earth. vivi

8 10/14/2013PHY 113 C Fall Lecture 148 From Webassign Assignment #12: Plaskett's binary system consists of two stars that revolve in a circular orbit about a center of mass midway between them. This statement implies that the masses of the two stars are equal (see figure below). Assume the orbital speed of each star is v = 190 km/s and the orbital period of each is 10.7 days. Find the mass M of each star. (For comparison, the mass of our Sun is kg.)
