**Newton’s Law of Gravity**

Starter

**Newton’s Law of Gravity**

Starter If the mass of the Earth stayed the same but the radius of the Earth doubles, what happens to your weight? a. it doubles also. b. it stays the same. c. it drops to 1/2 of the original. d. it drops to ¼ of the original. g = MG/R2

3
**Newton’s Law of Gravity**

Starter To increase the speed of an Earth satellite, should it be placed in an orbit closer to the Earth or further away from the Earth?

4
**Practice Newton’s Law of Gravity : Every two objects attract each**

other with a gravitational force given by: F = m1m2G/r2 m1 = mass of the first object in kg m2 = mass of the second object in kg r = distance between the two masses in meters G = 6.67 x 10-11

5
Practice / Example Find the gravitational force between the Earth and a 50,000kg asteroid that is 12 x 106 m away. masteroid = x104 kg mEarth = x 1024 kg G = x r = 12 x 106 m F = m1m2G/r2 = (5.00 x104 )( 6.00 x 1024 )(6.67 x ) / (12 x 106 )2 = x 105 Newtons = 139,000 Newtons

6
Practice / Example Find the gravitational force between Saturn and the sun. msun = x msaturn = x 1026 G = x r = x 109 F = m1m2G/r2 = (1.99 x1030 )(5.71 x 1026 )(6.67 x ) / (1430 x 109)2 = x 1022 Newtons

7
Where does g come from? Consider a person, mass m, standing on the Earth. His weight is: F = mMG/R2 = mg Cancel the person’s mass m: g = MG/R2 =(6x1024)(6.67x10-11)/(6.4x106)2 = 9.8 m/s2

8
**Circular Orbits Orbit Velocity Period**

F = mv2/R = mMG/R2 and v = 2pR / T Orbit Velocity Period R = Orbit Radius M = mass of planet or sun being orbited (The mass of the satellite is not in these 2 equations.)

9
**Example The moon is 385 x 106 m from the Earth’s center.**

R = 385 x MEarth = 6 x 1024 What is its orbit velocity? v = (MG/R)1/2 = ( ( 6 x 1024)(6.67 x 10-11)/(385 x106))1/2 = 1019 m/s What is the period? T = 2pR/v = (2p ) (385 x 106)/ = 2.37 x 106 seconds 2.37 x 106 seconds ( 1hr/3600s)(1 day/24 hr) = 27.5 days
