Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1radius shrinks by 5% means.. the radius becomes 95/100(Re  current earths radius).. So can you solve now?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1wait... so you tell me now.. once you substitue this new value of radius.. what is the ratio of the new value of g to the present value of g?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes.. but i want the value of g.. not the radius!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes exactly.. now put the new value of R .. and get the ratio!!

Mashy

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1correct.. now once you put new value.. you ll get a new g.. lets call that g prime... so find out what is the ratio of gprime to g?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if you plug in the values.. you should get g (prime)/ g = 1.108

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no.. see.. the increase is .108 ( 1.1081) ... hence percent is 10.8!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1!? :/ why differentiation? :O :O

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\frac{dg}{dR} = \frac{d}{dR} ( \frac {GM}{R ^{2}} ) = GM \frac{d}{dR} (R^{2}) \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0at last we get 0.1*100=10%!!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i mean it can be done in the normal method i told :P.. but this method holds too.. i dunno why we getting answer difference :D.. maybe something is wrong!! lemme recheck and get back

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i find no flaw in calc.. i dunno really what went wrong :/

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0There is a difference, because the differential method gives only a fistorder approximation of the result. The real answer is the one in which you work out the new value of g. If the shrinking had been 20%, the differential method would have lead to a very wrong value. On the other hand, if the shrinking were 0.1%, then your calculator would probably have problems coping with two big numbers almost identical to subtract, whereas the differential method would give a reliable answer.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ow.. thaks vincent for clearing that up! But why does the differential method give only an approximation!?... dg/dr, means change in the value of g for a change in value of r.. so why is it an approximation?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0dw:1353660718894:dw My dr should have been negative to match your problem. If dr is too big, the first order differential can lead you (by following the tangent and not the curve) to a value far from the real one.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1hence differentiation is used for instantaneous change right?!...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the new value og g will be 110.80% og the original g and hence the difference is 10.8%. \[g =GM divR ^{2}\]. The effective R= .95 R original. All the other values remain the same. Just divide by .95sq.
