1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A neutron star has a mass of 2.0 x 1030 and a radius of 5.0 x 103. Suppose an object falls from rest near the surface of the star. How fast would it be moving after it had fallen a distance of 0.010 m? (Assume that the gravitational force is constant over the distance of the fall, and that the star is not rotating.) 2. Relevant equations (a) F=(G*m1*m2)/r2 (b) F=ma (c) V2=Vo2 + 2ax 3. The attempt at a solution Using equation (a), I found the force to be about 1.068 x 1043 N Using equation (b), I found the acceleration to be 5.338 x 1012 Using equation (c), I found the velocity to be 231042.68 m/s after the object had fallen a distance of 0.01 m.
