Newton’s Law of
Universal
Gravitation
 Any two objects exert a
gravitational force of
attraction on each other. The
magnitude of the force is
proportional to the product of
the gravitational masses of the
objects, and inversely
proportional to the square of
the distance between them.

BASIC PROBLEM
Find the gravitational force between
a baseball (m=0.3kg) and a billiard
ball (m=0.4kg) if the distance
between their centers is 0.3m.
 The gravitational force
between two electrons 1.00m
apart is 5.42X10-71N.
Calculate the mass of an
electron.
 What is the electrical force
between these two electrons?
A STELLAR PROBLEM
We can consider the sun to be a satellite
of our galaxy, the Milky Way. The sun,
mass 2.0X1030kg, revolves around the
center of the galaxy with a radius of
2.2X1020 m. The period of one rotation is
8.2X1016.
a. Find the approximate mass of the galaxy.
b. Assume the average star in the galaxy has
the mass of the sun, find the number of
stars in the galaxy.
Acceleration due to gravity
 Find the acceleration due to
gravity on Earth’s surface.
 Find the acceleration due to
gravity on the surface of the
asteroid in Armageddon. r =
2.35x105 m, m = 4.28x1020 kg.
International Space Station
 The International Space
Station has an orbital
height of 370 km, what
is its speed as orbits
the earth?
 Earth mass –
5.97x1024kg
 Earth radius –
6.38x106m
 In minutes, how long
does it take the ISS to
rotate once around the
Earth?

Kepler’s 1st law
The paths of the planets
around the sun are ellipses
with the sun at one focus
point
Kepler’s 2nd law
 An imaginary line drawn from a planet to the
sun sweeps out equal areas in equal amounts
of time as the planet travels along its
elliptical path.

circle the sun. Find the
distance from the sun to
Uranus.
Kepler’s Third Law Problems
1. Comet Halley returns every 74 years. Find the average
distance from Halley to the sun.
2. Find the orbital radius of a Geosynchronous satellite. How
far from the surface of the earth is the satellite located?
