Students will learn to use Newton's Universal Law of Gravity equation to solve problems. They will also learn how the acceleration of gravity on Earth is calculated and a bit about gravitational fields in general.
Describes Isaac Newton's universal law of gravitational attraction.
Determining the speed of an object in uniform circular motion due to the gravitational force from another object
Determining the period of an object in uniform circular motion due to the gravitational force from another object
Determining the effect of changing the distance between two objects or the masses of the objects on the force of gravity using the equation F = G (m[1 ]m[2]) /r^(2 )
Determining the gravitational force acting on an object using the equation F = G (m[1 ]m[2]) /r^(2)
