1. If ‘r’ represents the radius of the orbit of a satellite of mass ‘m’ moving round a planet of mass ‘M’, the velocity of the satellite is given by

v2 = $\dfrac{gM}{r}$ v2 = $\dfrac{GMm}{r}$ v = $\sqrt{\dfrac{GM}{r}}$ v = $\dfrac{GM}{r^{2}}$

6. The distance of Neptune and Saturn from the sun are nearly 1013 m and 1012 m respectively. Assuming that they move in circular orbits, their periodic times would be in the ratio of

7. Imagine a light planet revolving around a very massive star in a circular orbit of radius R with a period of revolution T. If the gravitational force of attraction between the planet and the star is proportional to R-5/2 then

T2 \propto R2 T2 \propto R7/2 T2 \propto R3/2 T2 \propto R3

8. The acceleration due to gravity g and mean density of the earth ρ are related by which of
the following relation? Where g is gravitational constant and R is radius of the earth

ρ = $\dfrac{4\pi gR^{2}}{3G}$ ρ = $\dfrac{4\pi gR^{3}}{3G}$ ρ = $\dfrac{3g}{4\pi GR}$ ρ = $\dfrac{3g}{4\pi GR^{3}}$
