The gravitational field in a region is given by :

E= 5 N/ kg i 12 N/ kg J

If the potential at the origin is taken to be zero,

then the ratio of the potential at the points (12m, 0) and (0, 5m) is ??

a large number of identical point masses m are placed along x-axis , at x=0,1,2,3,4.....the magnitude of gravitational force on mass at origin (x=0), will be ??

A lift ascends from rest with uniform acceleration of 4m/s^2, then it moves with uniform velocity and finally comes to rest with uniform retardation of 4m/s^2. If the total distance covered during ascending is 28m and total time taken for ascending is 8s respectively. Find the time for which the lift moves with uniform velocity .Also find its uniform Velocity.

Two points masses having m and 4m are placed at distance at r. The gravitational potential at a point, where gravitational field intensity zero is

Asked By: SWATI KAPOOR 5 year ago

field intensity at distance x from m = Gm/x2 - G4m/(r-x)2

compare it to 0 and find x

then calculate gravitational potential at the point

During motion of a planet from perihelion to aphelion the work done by gravitational force of sun on it is positive or negative.

Asked By: SWATI KAPOOR 5 year ago

change in K E = work done by all the forces

and from perihelion to aphelion velocity decreases

so work done will be negative

If an object is projected vertically upwards with speed, half the escape speed of earth , then the maximum height attained by it is [R is radius of earth]

Asked By: SWATI KAPOOR 5 year ago

from ground to that point

1/2 m[√(2gR)/2] + [-GMm/R]  =  0 + [-GMm/(R+h)]

solve for h
