Problem 9CQ

Can classical physics be used to accurately describe a satellite moving at a speed of 7500 m/s? Explain why or why not.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 9CQ: Step 1 of 3 An object can be described by classical physics only if the object speed is not as much of 1% of speed of light, it can be observe with microscope and only inadequate gravitational field is involved. Comment Step 2 of 3 8 Speed of light is , 3 × 10 m/stherefore 1% of speed of light is 3 × 10 m/s. The satellite speed is 7500m/s , this is less than 1% of the speed of light and satellite is big enough but for the satellite the gravitational pull is very strong. Comment
