The centripetal force on a car rounding a curve on a level road is provided by
a) gravity b) friction c) the engine d) the car’s brakes e) normal force

On a “banked” turn, what is providing the centripetal force on a car?
friction and tension friction and gravity friction and normal force friction only

The moon’s mass is only 1. 2% of the earth’s mass
The moon’s mass is only 1.2% of the earth’s mass. Relative to the gravitational force the earth exerts on the moon, the gravitational force the moon exerts on the earth is a) smaller b) the same c) greater d) depends on whether the moon is made of cheese or not

The moon’s mass is only 1. 2% of the earth’s mass
The moon’s mass is only 1.2% of the earth’s mass. The gravitational acceleration the earth experiences compared to the gravitational acceleration the moon experiences is smaller b) the same c) greater

A bucket on a water wheel with a radius of 2
A bucket on a water wheel with a radius of 2.5 m makes one complete revolution in 4.2 seconds. How fast is the bucket moving? a)7.48 m/s b)3.7 m/s c)2.6 m/s d)1.87 m/s v = d/t d = Circumference = 2πr v = 2π(2.5)/4.2 v = 3.7 m/s

A 0.5 kg ball moves in a circle 40 cm in radius at a speed of 4.0 m/s. Its centripetal acceleration is F = mv2/r ma = mv2/r a = v2/r a = 42/.4 a = 40 m/s2 a) 10 m/s2 b) 20 m/s2 c) 30 m/s2 d) 40 m/s2

If the mass of Sputnik was doubled, by what factor would the force change if it was to remain in the same circular orbit? two times greater four times greater half as much one-fourth as much no change

Two small masses that are 10 cm apart attract each other with a force of 10 N. When they are 5 cm apart, with what force will they attract each other? (G = 6.67  Nm2/kg2) a) 5 N b) 2.5 N c) 20 N d) 40 N

An object moves in a circular path
An object moves in a circular path. If the radius is doubled while keeping the speed the same, then the centripetal force must be: a) two times more b) half as much c) four times more d) one-fourth as much e) the same

A planet of mass 3  1028 kg is in orbit around a star with mass 3  1030kg. The radius of the orbit is 1.5  1010m. The speed of the planet in orbit is a) 6.03  1048 m/s b) 1.15  1012 m/s c) 1.15  104 m/s d) 1.16  105 m/s

The speed of the planet from the previous question is 1. 16  105 m/s
