Gravitation
Venus, like other planets, circles the Sun in a round manner while spinning about its axis. A year is defined by the time it takes to complete one complete orbit (i.e., the period of orbit), just as it is on Earth. A day is defined by the time it takes to complete one complete turn about its axis (i.e., the period of rotation). The Earth's orbital period is 365.25 days, while its rotational period is 24 hours (1.00 day). When these identical figures for Venus are stated relative to Earth, it is discovered that Venus has an orbital period of 225 days and a rotational period of 243 days. A day would last longer than a year for Venus residents! Determine the frequency of orbit on Venus. Blank 1 x 10^Blank 2 Hz Blank 1 Blank 2 Physics
Gravitation
The gravitational field strength between two objects is the sum of two vectors pointing in opposite directions. Somewhere between the objects, the vectors will cancel, and the total force will be zero. Determine the location of zero force as a fraction of the distance r between the centres of two objects of mass m, and m₂. Physics
Gravitation
An alien spacecraft is out in space leaving an unknown planet. It detects the pull of gravity due to his unknown planet to be 100.0 N. Later the alien rechecks the pull on their spacecraft and detects it to be 33 N. By what factor has their distance changed as they left the unknown planet? Show proof! Physics
