Two satellites of earth S1 and S2, are moving in the same orbit. The mass of S1 is four times the mass of S2. Which one of the following statement is true?

• The time period of S1 is four times that of S2

• The potential energies of earth and satellite in the two cases are equalÂ

• S1 and S2 are moving with the same speed

• The kinetic energies of the two satellites are equal

C.

S1 and S2 are moving with the same speed

In same orbit, orbtial speed of satellites remains same. When two satellites of earth are moving in same orbit, then time period of both are equal.

From Kepler's third law

Time period is independent of mass, hence their t ime periods will be equal.
The potential energy and kinetic energy are mass dependent, hence the PE and KE of satellites are not equal.
But, if they are orbiting in a same orbit, then they have equal orbital speed.

The position co-ordinates of two particles of masses m1Â and m2are (x1, y1, z1) and (x2, y2, z2) respectively. Find the coordinates of the centre of mass.

The position vectors of masses m1Â and m2Â are respectively,

Let the position coordinates of the centre of mass be (X, Y, Z).

Therefore the position vector of centre of mass is,

Since, Â  Â

What is the celestial sphere?

At night, if we see the planets and the stars in the sky, all appear to lie in the hemisphere (rest of the hemisphere we are unable to see because of being on the other side of the earth). This sphere is called theÂ celestial sphere.
