1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A satellite is in circular orbit of radius R about a star of mass M . The star suddenly undergoes an explosion in which one percent of its mass is blown spherically symmetrically to a large distance. What are the new nearest and furthest distances of the satellite’s orbit around the star? 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution Am i right in thinking that both the angular momentum and energy of the star decrease..the new J = 0.99mrv and the new KE = 1/2 (0.99m)v^2? Same PE?
