5. (a) At what position in its elliptical orbit is the speed of a planet a maximum? (b)
At what position is the speed a minimum?
6. You are given the mass and radius of planet X. How would you calculate the freefall acceleration on this planet’s surface?
7. (a) If a hole could be dug to the center of the Earth, would the force on an object
of mass m still obey Equation 13.1 there? (b) What do you think the force on m
would be at the center of the Earth?
8. Explain why it takes more fuel for a spacecraft to travel from the Earth to the
Moon than for the return trip. Estimate the difference.
9. A satellite in low-Earth orbit is not truly traveling through a vacuum. Rather, it
moves through very thin air. Does the resulting air friction cause the satellite to
slow down?
