1. Homework Statement
(Assuming all circular orbits)
Say there is a star with mass M and a planet orbiting that star with a mass m.
The star M then suddenly loses half of its mass. (So now it is M/2)
What is the new radius of orbit of the planet around the star? Warning: Velocity will not be...
1. Homework Statement
we know the mass of the moon, Mm, and the earths, Me, and also the initial distance between their centers as the moon orbits the earth, Rem.
Now if the earth’s angular velocity about its own axis is slowing down from a initial given angular velocity, ωi to a final angular...
