1
The moon has an orbital period of 27.3 days and a mean distance of 3.80 x 105 km from the center of the Earth. Find the distance (km) an artificial satellite is from the center of Earth if its period is minutes.

2
A planet has two moons. the first is times as far from the center of the planet as the second and has a mass that is times the mass of the second. What is the ratio of the gravitational force on the first planet to the gravitational force on the second?

3
Two spherical balls are placed so their centers are m apart. The force between them is x 10-8 N. If the mass of the smaller ball is kg, what is the mass of the other ball?

4
How far (in km) from the center of the Earth would a person with a weight of N on Earth have to be to have a weight of N?

5
A kg child is sitting on a merry-go-round with a radius of m. The time it takes the merry-go-round to make one revolution is s. Find the centripetal acceleration of the child.
