Problem 59P

CP An astronaut, whose mission is to go where no one has gone before, lands on a spherical planet in a distant galaxy. As she stands on the surface of the planet, she releases a small rock from rest and finds that it takes the rock 0.480 s to fall 1.90 m. If the radius of the planet is 8.60 X 107 m, what is the mass of the planet?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 59P Introduction We have to calculate the acceleration due to gravity (g ) of the planet and then from the g we can calculate the mass. Step 1 The stone falls 1.90 m in 0.480 s. Hence we have h = 1.90 m t = 0.480 s. We also know that, for free fall,
