Problem 23

One of the communication frequencies that the InternationalSpace Station uses is 259.7 MHz. (a) Findthe gravitational frequency change with respect toEarth when the station is at its mean altitude of352 km. Assume g is constant and equal to 9.80 m/s2.(b) Now do a more precise calculation of the frequencyshift, without assuming that g is constant.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

The Legend of the Falling Apple - Newton was not the first to discover gravity. Newton discovered that gravity is universal. - Legend—Newton, sitting under an apple tree, realized that the force causing an Apple to accelerate downward is the same force causing the Moon to move in circular path around the earth - Newton was the first to realize that the Moon is constantly falling toward the earth Astronomy - Earliest Babylonian star catalogs are dating from about 1200 BCE B.Efore (the) C.ommon E.ra (BCE ) Or Before Christ (BC) Or Anno Domini (AD) (translated as In the year of the Lord) 2016 + 1200 = 3215 years ago Heliocentrism - Aristarchus of Samos (310 – 230 BC) presented the first known model that placed the Sun at the center of the known universe with the Earth revolving around it heliocentrism attracted little attention — possibly because of the loss of scientific works of the Hellenistic Era—until Copernicus Tyco Brahe - Wanted to determine how the heavens were constructed and pursued a project to identify positions of both stars and planets Johannes Kepler - Best known for developing laws of planetary motion. Based on the observations of Tycho Brahe Galileo Galilei - Legend of the Leaning Tower of Pisa: Galileo showed that dropped objects fall to the ground at the same time when air resistance is negligible The Universal Law of Gravity Newton’s Law of Universal Gravitation - All objects in the universe attra
