[Answers]

Ans01. Low of conservation of angular momentum.


Ans02. In accordance with the universal law of gravitation both the forces are equal and
opposite.

Ans03. Since

r 1 3r
Force will be decreased to 1/9 times
Ans04. Te = 1 year RJ = 5.2 Re

TJ =(5.2) 3/2 x 1year

TJ = 11.86 year

Ans05. = (1)

(2)

& (1) and (2) cam be written as

Since

Hence proved.
Ans06. (1) The period of revolution of a satellite around the earth should be same as that of
earth about its own axis (T=24hrs)
(2) The sense of rotation of satellite should be same as that of the earth about its own axis i.e.
from west to east in anti-clockwise direction
Ans07. Orbital velocity of a satellite is

Where M is the crass of earth

Time period of satellite T =

T =

T =

T2 =

Thus ,
Hence proved

Ans08. M = 6x1024 kg M = 400 kg

RE = 6.4x106m

Hence r = 2RE = 12.8x106m

G = 6.67x10-4 N m2/kg2

KE =

P. E. =

PE = -2 x 6.25 x 109 = -12.5× 109 Joules


T. E. = K. E + P. E

T. E. = 6.25 ×109 – 12.50 × 109

T. E. = 6.25 × 109 Joules


Ans09. Two spheres of density p and radii R and 2R

s = oo1 = 2R+R=3R

F =

F =

Ans10. Potential energy of a satellite

U=

U = GMm

U = GMm

U =GMm

Kinetic energy KE =

But

K. E =

Total energy of satellite E =

E = -
