- An exoplanet, 0.01% the mass of the Sun, orbits a star 2 times the mass of the Sun at a distance of 1AU = 1.5x10^8 km. Using Newton's Law of Universal Gravitation, determine the force between the exoplanet and the star. Mass of Sun = 2x10^30kg.
- Calculate the gravitational force acting on the Moon, caused by the Earth, given that the masses of the Earth and the Moon are 6 x10^24 and 7.3 x10^22, respectively. The distance between the Earth and the Moon is 384 400 km.
- A circuit with a cell of voltage 6V and two resistors of resistance 6 Ohms each connected in parallel. What is the current through the Cell?
- A photon of wavelength 656.3nm is emitted in the Balmer series of a Hydrogen emission lamp. (a). Show that the frequency of the photon is 4.57*10^14 Hz. (b).Use the Planck-Einstein relationship to calculate the energy of the photon.
- A tall 2 meter tall basketball player shoots for the net that stands 3 meters from the ground. If he throws he ball from head height at an angle of 60 degrees and the ball travels at 10 meters per second, how far away is the hoop?
