### Question Description

Chapter 5 Circular motion, the planets and gravity

• A ball is traveling at a constant speed of 5 m/s in a circle with a radius of 0.8 m. What is the centripetal acceleration of the ball? What’s its direction?
• A car with a mass of 1200 kg is moving around a curve with a radius of 40 m at a constant speed of 20 m/s.
a) What is the centripetal acceleration of the car?
b) What is the magnitude of the force required to produce this centripetal acceleration?
• Two 100-kg persons are separated by a distance of 1 m. using Newton’s law of gravitation, find the magnitude of the attractive gravitational force exerted by one person to the other.
• Two masses are attracted by a gravitational force of 0.36 N. What will the force of attraction be if the distance between the two masses is tripled?
• Does an astronaut have the same weight in different planets? Explain why.
• Why uniform circular motion has acceleration if it has the same speed everywhere?
