In: If the moon has a mass of × kg, an orbital speed of km/s an orbital radius of km, What is the gravitational force of the earth moon system?

3
Objective: To find out about the law of universal gravitation. Success criteria: You will be able to solve universal gravitational problems.

4
Homework: #52

Problem: Oscar (mass=65kg) and Olivia (mass=45 kg) sit 2 meters apart in physics class. What is the force of gravitational attraction between them? Does this cause them to drift toward each other?

10
Gravitational force is a vector

11
Inverse square laws Anything that spreads out from a point source –Gravitational force –Electrical force –Sound intensity –Light intensity –Radiation intensity

12
Inverse square law - gravitation

13
Inverse square law – light intensity

14
Light intensity

15
Inverse square law - radiation

17
Inverse square law – electric force

18
Sound spreads out as an inverse square

19
Gravitation problem set:

20
Out: If the distance between two point particles is doubled, then the gravitational force between them: a)Decreases by a factor of 4 b)Decreases by a factor of 2 c)Increases by a factor of 2 d)Increases by a factor of 4 e)Cannot be determined without knowing the masses.
