New Problems reloads the page with new variable values in all questions. You must do this after grading the test to rework it another time.
Make sure to enter your answers in the specified units .
1
What is the gravitational field (in N/kg) Earth radii above the Earth's surface?

2
What is the gravitational field (in N/kg) km above a planet with a mass of x 1022 kg and a radius of x 106 m?

3
An astronaut standing on the surface of the moon launches a projectile straight up from the surface. What should the initial speed (in m/s) of the projectile be so that it will reach a height of x 106 m above the moon's surface? (The moon's mass is 7.35 x 1022 kg and its radius is 1.74 x 106 m.)

4
What is the escape velocity (in m/s) from a planet with a radius of x 106 m and a mass of x 1022 kg?

5
How much work (in kJ) is done lifting a kg payload from the Earth's surface to a height of m above the Earth's surface? (The mass of the Earth is 5.98 x 1024 kg and the Earth's radius is 6.38 x 106 m.)

6
How much work (in MJ) is done to raise a kg payload from Earth's surface to a height of x 106 m above the Earth's surface? (The mass of the Earth is 5.98 x 1024 kg and the Earth's radius is 6.38 x 106 m.)
