1. ### Gravitational Field Strength

Homework Statement Homework Equations g = GM / r^2, where g is the gravitational field strength, G is the gravitational constant, M is the mass of the attracting body, r is the radius of the attracting body. p = M / v, where p is density and v is the volume. Vs = 4/3 * pi * r^3, where Vs is...
2. ### Gravitational potential

Homework Statement Homework Equations g = G*M / r^2, where g is the gravitational field strength, G is the gravitational constant, M is the mass of the attracting body, r is the distance from the center of mass of the body. V = -G*M / r, where V is the gravitational potential. The Attempt...
3. ### Simple harmonic motion acceleration

Homework Statement Homework Equations acceleration = -(2*pi*f)^2 * x, where f is the frequency and x is the displacement from equilibrium. The Attempt at a Solution I thought the acceleration would be greatest when the displacement from equilibrium is greatest, so at point P, but the answer...
4. ### Simple harmonic motion question

Homework Statement http://puu.sh/cAjmp/14ba3df23a.jpg [Broken] Homework Equations Acceleration at any instant: -(2*pi*f)^2 * x, where x is displacement from equilibrium and f is frequency. The Attempt at a Solution Firstly, I know it can't be D as acceleration would increase as potential...
