Question 1 Calculate the period of revolution of Neptune around sun, given that diameter of its orbit is

30 times the diameter of earths orbit around the Sun, both orbits being assumed to be circular.

Question 2 A rocket is fired from the earth towards the sun. At what point on its path is the gravitational

force on rocket zero? Mass of sun = 21030 Kg, mass of earth =61024 Kg. Neglect the effect of other

planets etc. Orbital radius of earth = 1.51011m

Question 3 A stone let fall from the top of a tower transverses a distance of 24.5 m in the last second of

its fall. Find the height of the tower.

Question 4 An object thrown vertically upwards from the top of a building reaches the foot of the

building at time t1. It takes a time t2, if thrown vertically downwards with the same velocity. If the time

of free fall is t show that t t1 t2

Question 5 The time period of satellite of earth is 5 hours. If the separation between earth and the

satellite is increased to 4 times the previous value then find the new time period.

Question 6 Show that the Keplers second law follows from the law of conservation of angular

momentum.

Question 7 The moon revolves round the earth and the earth-moon system revolves around the sun. Of

the earth could be removed without disturbing the motion of the moon, what would be the subsequent

path of the moon?

Question 8 Explain why one could jump higher on the surface of the moon than on the earth.

Question 9 Determine the gravitational force of attraction between a uniform sphere of mass M and a

uniform rod of length L and mass m, if the distance of the near end of the rod from the center of the

sphere is r.

Question10 The radii of the planets are respectively R1 and R2 and their densities are respectively 1 and

2. What is the ratio of acceleration due to gravity at their surfaces?

Question 11 If the radius of earth shrinks by 5%, mass remaining the same, then how would the value of

acceleration due to gravity change?

Question 12 Imagine a spacecraft going from earth to moon. How does its weight vary as it goes from

the earth to the moon? Will there be any change in the mass?

Derive the equation for distance traveled in nth second by: (Sn= u + a/2(2n-1) 1)Graphical method

2)Integration method

1. Graphical Method:

= area of CDFG + area of BCDE

= area of CDFG + area of ADE - Area of ACB
