Problem 67P

The space shuttle, with mass 86.400 kg. is in a circular-orbit of radius 6.66 × 106 m around the earth. It takes 90.1 min for the shuttle to complete each orbit. On a repair mission, the shuttle is cautiously moving 1.00 m closer to a disabled satellite every 3.00 s. Calculate the shuttle’s kinetic energy (a) relative to the earth and (b) relative to the satellite.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 76P a)Mass of the shuttle is 86400 kg. The radius of the shuttle’s orbit is, R = 6.66 × 10 m. The time to complete 1 complete revolution is, T = 90.1 min = 90.1 × 60 = 5406 s. The velocity of the shuttle we can find by, v = 2R / T = 2××6.66×106= 7740.66 m/s. 5406 The kinetic energy with respect to earth is, 2 K.E earth= 1/2 × m × v = 1/2 × m × × R2 = 1/2 × 86.4 × (7740.66) = 2.59 × 10 jules b)The shuttle moves 1 meters towards the satellite in every 3 s. So, the velocity of the shuttle w.r.t the satellite will be, v = 1/3 = 0.33 m/s. Hence the kinetic energy would be, K.E satellite1/2 mv 2 = 1/2 × 86400 × 0.33 = 4704.48 jules.
