Radius of Earth, = 6.37 106 . Mass of Earth, = 5.98 1024 . Wiens Constant = 0.00289mK

1. Using the fact that the Gravitational acceleration, g = 9.8 2 at the Earths surface, find the average density of the Earth. (Mark: 5) Solution: As Earth is Spherical, the volume of the Earth is

4 3 3

4 3

Or, =

(6.37 106 )

Density of Earth,

5.9810 24 1.08310 21 3

5522 3 (Answer)

2013

2. Given the strongest emitted wavelength, = 5 107 . Find the surface temperature of the Sun. (Hint: Use Wiens Displacement Law) (Mark: 5) Solution: Wiens Displacement Law, T = 0.00289 Or, T = Or, T =

0.00289

0.00289 510 7

Or, T = 5780 K 5800 () 3. Calculate the Escape Velocity ( ) from the Earth for a 5000-kg spacecraft, and determine the kinetic energy it must have at the Earths surface in order to escape the Earths Gravitational Field. (Mark: 10) Solution: The escape velocity from the surface of Earth, = 2

2 6.6710 11 2 2 (5.9810 24 ) 6.3710 6

= 1.12 104 1

The kinetic energy of the spacecraft is, 1 = 2 2 = 2 5000 (1.12 104 1 )2 = 3.14 1011 J (Answer) 4. The suns nearest-neighbor is Proxima Centauri, 4.2 ly distant. How far is this in Parsecs? (Mark: 5) Solution: We Know, 3.26 = 1

1

1 =

1 3.26

4.2 =

14.2 3.26

= 1.29 1.3 ()
