November 2 AP Physics

2
In: If the moon has a mass of × 1022 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

5
**Newton’s Law of Universal Gravitation**

7
**Newton’s Law of Universal Gravitation:**

9
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
**Anything that spreads out from a point source**

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: Decreases by a factor of 4 Decreases by a factor of 2 Increases by a factor of 2 Increases by a factor of 4 Cannot be determined without knowing the masses.
