1. Compute the force of attraction between two planets (Planet A and Planet B). The mass of Planet A is 12.34 x 1024 kg and Planet B is 364.25 x 1020 kg and the distance between them is 788,354 km.
Compute the Potential Energy of a certain object that is on Earth that is located at the top of a 100-meter building. The mass of the object is 13.7 kg.
1. An inelastic collision occurs in one dimension, in which a 15 kg block traveling at 7.6 m/s collides with a 13.2 kg block traveling at 2.5 m/s in the same direction, and they stick together. What are the velocities of the blocks immediately after the collision?
1. The momentum of a particle is 50 kg-m/s. If the velocity of the particle is 5 m/s, what is its mass? If the particle is located on a certain planet where the acceleration due to gravity is 5.87 m/s2, what is its weight?
