Problem 73P

Comets travel around the sun in elliptical orbits with large eccentricities. If a comet has speed 2.0 X 104 m/s when at a distance of 2.5 X 1011 m from the center of the sun, what is its speed when at a distance of 5.0 X 1010 m?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Step 1 of 1 Conservation of energy is K + U + w = K + U 1 1 other 2 2 The gravity force exerted by the sun is the only force that does work on the comet, so W = 0 other 1 2 Gm...
