The Moon and Earth are bound together by gravity. If, instead, the force of attraction were the result of each having a charge of the same magnitude but opposite in sing, find the quantity of charge that would have to be placed on each to produce the required force.

The force due to gravity
\(\displaystyle{F}={\frac{{{G}{M}{m}}}{{{R}^{{2}}}}}\)
G - universal gravitational constant
M - mass of the earth
m - mass of the moon
R - distance
force between the the charges
\(\displaystyle{F}={\frac{{{Q}^{{2}}}}{{{4}\sigma\pi{R}^{{2}}}}}\)
Equating and solve for Q
0

Assume that a ball of charged particles has a uniformly distributednegative charge density except for a narrow radial tunnel throughits center, from the surface on one side to the surface on the opposite side. Also assume that we can position a proton any where along the tunnel or outside the ball. Let \(\displaystyle{F}_{{R}}\) be the magnitude of the electrostatic force on the proton when it islocated at the ball's surface, at radius R. As a multiple ofR, how far from the surface is there a point where the forcemagnitude is 0.44FR if we move the proton(a) away from the ball and (b) into the tunnel?

A paraglider is flying horizontally at a constant speed.Assume that only two forces act on it in the vertical direction,its weight and a vertical lift force exerted on its wings by theair. The lift force has a magnitude of 1800 N.
(a) What is the magnitude and direction of the force that theparaglider exerts on the earth ?
(b)If the lift force should suddenly decrease to 1200 N, whatwould be the vertical acceleration of the glider ? For bothquestions, take the upward direction to be the + y direction.

A pair of forces with equal magnitudes, opposite directions,and different lines of action is called a "couple". When acouple acts on a rigid object, the couple produces a torque thatdoes not depend on the location of the axis. The drawing shows acouple acting on a tire wrench, each force being perpendicular tothe wrench. Determine an expression for the torque produced by thecouple when the axis is perpendicular to the tired and passesthrough (a) point A, (b) point B, and (c) point C. Express youranswers in terms of the magnitude F of the force and the length Lof the wrench

In the figure a worker lifts a weight \(\displaystyle\omega\) by pulling down on a rope with a force \(\displaystyle\vec{{{F}}}\). The upper pulley is attached to the ceiling by a chain,and the lower pulley is attached to the weight by another chain.The weight is lifted at constant speed. Assume that the rope,pulleys, and chains all have negligible weights.

A) In terms of \(\displaystyle\omega\),find the tension in the lower chain.
B) In terms of \(\displaystyle\omega\),find the tension in upper chain.
C) In terms of \(\displaystyle\omega\),find the magnitude of the force \(\displaystyle\vec{{{F}}}\) if the weight is lifted at constant speed.

The equation F=−vex(dm/dt) for the thrust on a rocket, can also be applied to an airplane propeller. In fact, there are two contributions to the thrust: one positive and one negative. The positive contribution comes from air pushed backward, away from the propeller (so dm/dt<0), at a speed vex relative to the propeller. The negative contribution comes from this same quantity of air flowing into the front of the propeller (so dm/dt>0) at speed v, equal to the speed of the airplane through the air.
For a Cessna 182 (a single-engine airplane) flying at 130 km/h, 150 kg of air flows through the propeller each second and the propeller develops a net thrust of 1300 N. Determine the speed increase (in km/h) that the propeller imparts to the air.

As depicted in the applet, Albertine finds herself in a very odd contraption. She sits in a reclining chair, in front of a large, compressed spring. The spring is compressed 5.00 m from its equilibrium position, and a glass sits 19.8m from her outstretched foot.
a)Assuming that Albertine's mass is 60.0kg , what is \(\displaystyle\mu_{{k}}\), the coefficient of kinetic friction between the chair and the waxed floor? Use \(\displaystyle{g}={9.80}\frac{{m}}{{s}^{{2}}}\) for the magnitude of the acceleration due to gravity. Assume that the value of k found in Part A has three significant figures. Note that if you did not assume that k has three significant figures, it would be impossible to get three significant figures for \(\displaystyle\mu_{{k}}\), since the length scale along the bottom of the applet does not allow you to measure distances to that accuracy with different values of k.

When two targets are presented close together in a rapid visual stream, the second target is often missed. Psychologists call this phenomenon the attentional blink (AB). A study published in Advances in Cognitive Psychology (July 2013) investigated whether simultaneous or preceding sounds could reduce AB. Twenty subjects were presented a rapid visual stream of symbols and letters on a computer screen and asked to identify the first and second letters (the targets). After several trials, the subject's AB magnitude was measured as the difference between the percentages of first target and second target letters correctly identified. Each subject performed the task under each of three conditions. In the Simultaneous condition, a sound (tone) was presented simultaneously with the second target; in the Alert condition, a sound was presented prior to the coming of the second target; and in the No-Tone condition, no sound was presented with the second target. Scatterplots of AB magnitude for each possible pair of conditions are shown below as well as the least squares line for each. a. Which pair of conditions produces the least squares line with the steepest estimated slope? b. Which pair of conditions produces the least squares line with the largest SSE? c. Which pair of conditions produces the least squares line with the smallest estímate of σ?
