Recently I gave my Astronomy Olympiad. There were some questions of descriptive type. If you all dont mind I would like to discuss them here.
Here goes the first... Well, if it had been a question of geometry, I would have just calculated the angle for cos-1 (6400/42400). My answer would come 81.1... But what I wrote is about the stability of the satellite. Will the satellite be stable at an altitude of 36000 Kilometres. What do you think??
OK :D It means I was foolish to prove that the satellite was unstable. anyways, here goes the second question: I think that more than 1 arrangement is possible. And the sum should always be a constant. Probably 360 degree. Whadda say? :tongue2:
Oh very well!! thanks for that :D The third question. I have assumed that the shell is spherical. And the the space inside the shell is vacuum. Am I going in the right direction?
