seems like I forgot Kepler laws ... let's see

The period of an object orbital around the sun is proportional to the radius?
 one year ago

JenniferSmart1Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
whose radius? or perhaps some distance? The distance between that object and the sun?

it doesn't matter which side you take ... lol

dw:1361863110279:dw sweetheart, I have all the formulas staring at me from my notebook. I'm trying to have a discussion about those wonderful formulas

THanks! When do we know we have reached escape speed? \[U_f+K_f=U_i+K_i\] Let's derive escape speed. we don't have a final kinetic energy when we've reached escape speed correct?

put the total energy=0 find V
 one year ago

JenniferSmart1Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Why what's the logic behind it? WHy is the total energy zero?
 one year ago

DLSBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
If a body's total net mec. energy=0,it will escape from the earth's gravitational field

find the total work done when bringing object from infinity to position 'r'
 one year ago

JenniferSmart1Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
oh ok, so when the kinetic energy equals the potential energy?
 one year ago

DLSBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
have u heard of binding energy

JenniferSmart1Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Let's see if I remember. When E<0 or =0
 one year ago

JenniferSmart1Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
parabolic and hyperbolic orbits?
 one year ago

JenniferSmart1Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
that's when they're unbound correct?
 one year ago

JenniferSmart1Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
nope when E>0 is unbound
 one year ago

JenniferSmart1Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
when E is less than zero is the only time when it's bound
 one year ago

JenniferSmart1Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
So when the potential is greater than the kinetic energy the energy is bound?
 one year ago

JenniferSmart1Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
gotta sleep =) Thanks for the discussion everyone. I look forward to hear more about bounded and unbounded Energy when I wake up. See ya :)

sorry ... was kinda busy not paying attention

experimentXBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
this way you can do it ... for escape velocity. dw:1361863974972:dw

experimentXBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
You can equate those two, and hence get the result ...
 one year ago

experimentXBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
I think ... if the velocity is less than esc velocity, the orbit will be elliptical or circular at escape velocity, the orbit is parabolic, and beyond that .... it's hyperbolic.
