two objects. The universal gravitational constant is 6.672 1011 N m2 /kg2 . Answer in units of N 004 (part 2 of 2) 10.0 points At what angle does it act with respect to the positive x axis? Let counterclockwise be positive, within the limits of 180 to 180 . Answer in units of 005 10.0 points The asteroid Hektor, discovered in 1907, is in a nearly circular orbit of radius 5.5 AU about the sun, which has a mass of 1.98 1030 kg. Determine the period of this asteroid. Answer in units of y 006 10.0 points Given: G = 6.67259 1011 N m2 /kg2 A planet is orbiting a star. Calculate the mass of the star using the fact that the period of the planet is 3.16 107 s and its distance from the star is 2.31 1011 m. Answer in units of kg 007 10.0 points A 8.69479 kg mass experiences a gravitational force of (144.776 N) at some point P. What is the gravitational eld at that point? Answer in units of N/kg 008 10.0 points A thin spherical shell has a radius of 5 m and a mass of 353 kg, and its center is located at the origin of a coordinate system. Another thin spherical shell with a radius of 3 m and mass 159 kg is inside the larger shell with its center at 0.31 m on the x axis. What is the gravitational force of attraction between the two shells? Answer in units of N 009 (part 1 of 3) 10.0 points C The density of a sphere is given by (r) = . r The sphere has a radius of 3.42 m and a mass of 1011 kg. Find the constant C.

Which quantity must have the same magnitude for both spheres? 1. velocity 2. acceleration 3. kinetic energy 4. displacement from the center of mass 5. gravitational force 002 10.0 points The strength of the gravitational force between objects depends on 1. the mass of each object. 2. the distance between the objects. 3. neither the masses nor the distance between them. 4. the mass of each object and the distance between them. 003 (part 1 of 2) 10.0 points A coordinate system (in meters) is constructed on the surface of a pool table, and three objects are placed on the coordinate system as follows: a 0.8 kg object at the origin, a 2.9 kg object at (0 m,1.7 m), and a 4.3 kg object at (4.4 m,0 m). Find the resultant gravitational force exerted on the object at the origin by the other
