If suddenly the gravitational force of attraction between earth and a satellite revolving around it becomes zero,then the satellite will: a)continue to move in its orbit with same velocity. b)move tangentially and escape away. c)become stationary in its orbit. d)move towards the earth.

i think it will move tangentially and then escape away
mayankdevnani
  • mayankdevnani
why?

because nothing is holding it back now.

  • mayankdevnani
but answer is showing is option c
bahrom7893
  • bahrom7893
uhm I would disagree with that answer.
mayankdevnani
  • mayankdevnani
so answer is wrong
bahrom7893
  • bahrom7893
if anyone else can prove why option C is correct, please do.

is it a geo-stationary orbit initially
mayankdevnani
  • mayankdevnani
what it means is it a geo-stationary orbit initially

in simple def.

  • UnkleRhaukus
the object orbits as the planet turns
mayankdevnani
  • mayankdevnani
ok
mayankdevnani
  • mayankdevnani
in what case option a) satisfies
anonymous
  • anonymous
object orbits becoz of gravity of earth
mayankdevnani
  • mayankdevnani
ok
mayankdevnani
  • mayankdevnani
so in what case option c satisfies
anonymous
  • anonymous
geostationary means the object orbital period is same as earth rotation
mayankdevnani
  • mayankdevnani
thnx.. @sara12345
mayankdevnani
  • mayankdevnani
in what case option c satisfies
mayankdevnani
  • mayankdevnani
plz tell me
anonymous
  • anonymous
i think so
mayankdevnani
  • mayankdevnani
@sauravshakya
anonymous
  • anonymous
i mean b is right
mayankdevnani
  • mayankdevnani
ok
mayankdevnani
  • mayankdevnani
but answer my question fast. in what case option c satisfies
anonymous
  • anonymous
it never satisfies
anonymous
  • anonymous
the answer to this question is b)move tangentially and escape away. since the velocity of the satellite is always tangent to the path for case c .. somehow the velocity of the satellite have to become zero as well as no gravity then it stops
anonymous
  • anonymous
if the object is stationary initially, it would fall on earth there and then itself
mayankdevnani
  • mayankdevnani
why? if gravity becomes zero at all the objects
anonymous
  • anonymous
for gravity to become 0 suddenly, it has to exist first
anonymous
  • anonymous
when gravity + stationary object are there, the object would fall
anonymous
  • anonymous
the object wouldnt fall as long as it revolves around the earth
mayankdevnani
  • mayankdevnani
ok you say that whaen gravity is zero it would fall on earth there and then itself
anonymous
  • anonymous
no that i didnt say, u r not listening properly
anonymous
  • anonymous
if the satellite has no speed and there is no force (like gravity) acting upon it it stands still.. so for case c to happen you need to have no gravity + zero speed
mayankdevnani
  • mayankdevnani
means it would fall on that object
mayankdevnani
  • mayankdevnani
@sara12345 @Coolsector is right?
anonymous
  • anonymous
lol i dont need her approval anyway
mayankdevnani
  • mayankdevnani
but she said when gravity is zero it would fall on that object
anonymous
  • anonymous
i didnt say that
anonymous
  • anonymous
i dont think she said it
anonymous
  • anonymous
i said this : when gravity + stationary object are there, the object would fall
anonymous
  • anonymous
we see the transition time, when we say the gravity is becoming 0 => gravity existed before
mayankdevnani
  • mayankdevnani
oh!! sry...
anonymous
  • anonymous
if gravity existed before, and therez a stationary object sitting there, it cannot sit there, it has to fall
mayankdevnani
  • mayankdevnani
in what case option d satisfies
anonymous
  • anonymous
a stationary object case is false
mayankdevnani
  • mayankdevnani
ok
mayankdevnani
  • mayankdevnani
in case of option d
anonymous
  • anonymous
d might happen when there is gravity but no speed for example .. then the satellite falls
mayankdevnani
  • mayankdevnani
oh!! k
anonymous
  • anonymous
or the speed is not high enough
mayankdevnani
  • mayankdevnani
so final answer would be
anonymous
  • anonymous
we said : the answer to your question is b)move tangentially and escape away.
mayankdevnani
  • mayankdevnani
thnx... @UnkleRhaukus @sara12345 @Coolsector @bahrom7893
