    Complicated Maths Question? Need Help? How do you do this question?

    1. A space shuttle was launched straight up, and its altitude is given by h = 10 t^2 after t seconds. You are on the ground 500 metres away from the launch site watching the shuttle going up. The line of sight from you to the rocket makes an angle x with the horizontal. By how many radians per second is x changing ten seconds after the launch?

  • Teh Tarik says:

    Nasty Physics Question About Satellites And Circular Motion? “A space shuttle is launched into orbit from a point A on the Equator. The shuttle then enters a stable circular orbit of radius Ro, at point B.” (in the diagram, B is some distance obliquely above point A) “The radius of the Earth is 6.4 x 10^6 m. The ratio of the gravitational field strength at A to that at B is equal to 1.2. Calculate the distance Ro,”
    So I simply can’t do this question, it seems like too little info is given. All I know is that (gA/gB) = 1.2 and the Earth’s radius is 6.4 x 10^6. I was wondering if I could assume the gravitational force at A (which as mentioned is on the surface of the Earth, at the equator) is equal to 9.8 Nkg^-1. Knowing this would enable me to find gB. But I’m not sure if I’m allowed to assume that because it’s not included in the question. *sigh*

    • Curator says:

      You probably should use instead the force of Universal Gravitation as the Force: GMm/r^2, then the force field would be GM/r^2 radially inwards. M is the mass of the Earth.

      GM/(R)^2 = 1.2*GM/(Ro)^2 where R is the radius of the Earth.
      Solve for Ro.

      G and M nicely cancels.

    Earn Money People !!!~~~~~~~~~? Q. What is WAZZUB?

    WAZZUB is the world’s one and only Profit Sharing Phenomenon.
    It is the first online community that shares its profits with its free pre-launch members
    simply for choosing WAZZUB as their home page after launch.
    WAZZUB is always free for everyone.

    Q. What is the Power of “We”?

    It’s a fact: companies like Google or Facebook earn BILLIONS OF $$$ every quarter
    just because we, the Internet users use their services.
    It is time to understand, that we “the users” decide who is earning the big money.
    If we together decide to use the services of a company that shares profits with us,
    there is nothing that the other companies could do about it.

    It’s so easy: the more users that join the WAZZUB Family for free,
    the more money we “the users” will earn!

    That is what we call the Power of “We”!

    Q. Who owns and operates WAZZUB?

    WAZZUB is an international project that has been created by a handful of entrepreneurs and investors.
    In September 2011 they founded GIT Global Investments, Inc. (GIT)
    for the purpose of running WAZZUB and related businesses.
    GIT is registered under the laws of Oregon. The Registration # is 802159-90.

    A team of more than 20 specialists is working hard to turn WAZZUB into a huge success;
    most of them are behind the scenes and some of them are visible for all members –
    for example, our Master Distributor and our Support Staff.

    Q. Where is WAZZUB’s office?

    GIT’s registered office is at 391 NW 179th Ave, Beaverton, OR 97006
    and our WAZZUB headquarters is located at 7251 Lake Mead Blvd, Suite 364, Las Vegas, NV 89128.

    Q. WAZZUB sounds too good to be true. Is WAZZUB a scam or is it a real business?

    For sure WAZZUB is doing real business but it is no traditional business.
    The Internet is changing the world and there is enough space for innovative business models
    that have never been done before. WAZZUB is one of those business models.

    For the first time ever a global online community is sharing its profits
    with its pre-launch members. That is why we named it the first Profit Sharing Phenomenon.

    Actually, WAZZUB is too good to pass up.

    Q. How does WAZZUB make money?

    WAZZUB makes money in many different ways.
    On April 9 we will launch a state-of-the-art website with patent-pending technology.
    On this page we’ll display ads and special deals.

    In fact, we do exactly the same as companies like Facebook, Google, AOL and Yahoo.
    They offer free services and earn billions of $$$ just by displaying ads and special offers.
    The only difference is that we share our profits with our pre-launch members.

    Q. How and when do the members get paid?

    WAZZUB pays its members on a monthly basis.
    Our first pay day will be May 15, 2012 for the month of April.
    Small amounts will be paid by an online payment processor
    and large amounts will be paid by check or bank wire.

    However, WAZZUB is working on a simple global payment solution to best serve our world-wide community.

    Q. Is it true that the members get paid US$1 per person in their 5 generations family?

    There is no fixed amount that will be paid to all members.
    During pre-launch, every member is building his personal $FACTOR
    by inviting other members to join WAZZUB for free.
    Each new member, 5 generations deep let your personal $FACTOR grow by 1.

    After launch, the members’ $FACTORs are fixed and by adding them up
    we receive the total amount of $FACTORs (= the global $FACTOR).
    Each month we calculate WAZZUB’s profit and divide it by the global $FACTOR
    to determine the actual multiplicator.

    Example: Let’s say that the profit to be shared for the month of April is $4 million
    and the global $FACTOR is 5 million.
    Each member would earn $0.80 per personal $FACTOR
    ($0.80 x your personal $FACTOR = your income for that particular month)

    If there would be $5 million to share, the multiplicator would be $1.00 and at $6 million it would be $1.20.

    The more free members that set up WAZZUB as their home page after launch,
    the more money the pre-launch members will earn.

    LET’S ACTIVATE THE POWER OF “WE”!

    What Is Your Comment On My Simple Asteroid Deflection Plan? Here’s my asteroid deflection plan:

    Apophis data
    Apophis,an Aten asteroid,has been discovered at 2004.But,at 2036,the asteroid will crash our Earth.The place will cover Russia,Pacific Ocean,Middle America,South America and West Africa.Apophis’s length was estimated at 450 metres (1,500 ft) .As a result,it ban be bombed by nuclear bombs or just be deflected by other method .it will cross below the geostationary orbit on 2029.

    2011 AG5 data
    2011 AG5 is an Apollo asteroid which has been discovered in 2011.It is currently listed in Torino scale level 1.There are five possibilities of impact between year 2040 to 2047.The mass is assumed to be 4 gigagrams ,and the dimension meter is assumed to be 140m,the height of Centennial Tower.

    How to Deflect ( also loosely applicable to 2011 AG5,but with major modification on these plans) :
    1.Nuclear bomb method( only for last resort only) :First,a russian space shuttle carries 2 nuclear bombs.Next,they will be attached on the OPSEK space station ( which is formed by today’s Russian segment of the ISS that would be separated,before the ISS retire in 2028)..The nuclear bombs will fired to bomb Apophis on its closest approach on 2029 by a pair of ion engine .But they must be bomb Apophis before crossing the geostationary orbit to prevent sight effects.

    2.Conventional rocket motor: Russia should launch a group of modified spacecraft called Apophis-Grunt to deflect the asteroid.Apophis grunt would be made up of components similar to the previous Phobos-grunt,but with a ion rocket motor on the top,while rocket engine similar to the Phobos- Grunt would be used,with an additional propulsion from IUS like booster.These booster should carry some extra fuel,which will help these main Apophis -Grunt spacecraft to deflect the asteroid.these spacecraft could again be carried into space by either Russian space shuttle or modified US Boeing X-37B,depending on the cost and political feasibility.

    3.Gravitional tractor: A gravitional tractor could be assembled by Americans,Europeans and Russians onboard the OPSEK space station (if they need a larger tractor, a lunar space factory should be assembled on the moon,doing in-situ resource utilization,resources extracted from the moon would be assembled at the lunar space factory,using robot labors which human mind could control,similar to Avatar.A self replicating machine is also merited,depending on the economy of the world).Once assembled,the tractor could be lifted up into space by space blimp send from earth.Afterwards,the required change of the momentum M caused by the tractor should be calculate by formula p=MV, where M is the mass of the asteroid and V is the required change of the speed.If the value of V and M is obtained,then the asteroid  tracting mission should be done according to these data.
    This is a proposal only. As I am only a teenager,I hope that astronomy pros can correct my data and information.

    Google Unveils “Solve For X,” A Secret Project To Solve The World’s Biggest Problems? Google unveiled a new project dedicated to tackling some of the world’s biggest problems early Monday morning.

    The company launched a site, called “Solve for X,” a TED-like think tank that will encourage problem solving and teamwork to come up with “radical” ideas for big picture problems.

    “Solve for X is a place where the curious can go to hear and discuss radical technology ideas for solving global problems,” reads the Solve for X website.

    “Radical in the sense that the solutions could help billions of people. Radical in the sense that the audaciousness of the proposals makes them sound like science fiction. And radical in the sense that there is some real technology breakthrough on the horizon to give us all hope that these ideas could really be brought to life.”

    There is a telling focus on innovation for the sake of innovation. The project is looking for “moonshot” ideas and thinking, and the fruits of some of these labors are already on the horizon, BGR reports.

    One of Google chief scientists, Richard DeVaul, revealed via his Google+ page that an invite-only Solve for X conference over the weekend had discussed ways of “transforming education” and creating “5x improvements in agriculture through better decision support, synthetic biology, and carbon-negative biofuels.”

    DeVaul also announced that the Solve for X YouTube page and website will be updated to include video’s of the presentations for all to see.

    Google did not respond to FoxNews.com requests for comment.

    The project is believed to be linked to Google X, the company’s top-secret lab dedicated to “shoot-for-the-stars” type ideas, such as driverless cars, web-connected appliances, and even space elevators.

    The labs are reportedly run “as mysteriously as the C.I.A.,” according to unnamed sources familiar with the project, and housed in two facilities — one in California at the company’s headquarters and one in an undisclosed location elsewhere in the country.

    “They’re pretty far out in front right now,” Rodney Brooks, a professor emeritus at M.I.T.’s computer science and artificial intelligence lab and founder of Heartland Robotics, told the Times. “But Google’s not an ordinary company, so almost nothing applies.”

    Why Can’t The Obama Regime Just Stop Funding Illegal’s Medical Treatment? Treatment at the hospital emergency rooms and use that money to fund other much more important projects like NASA ?
    Funding for NASA should be a drop in the bucket as compared to the money we waste on helping out illegal immigrants from Mexico.
    AUSTIN, Texas — With NASA operating on an increasingly tight budget, the agency’s ability to launch future large astronomy missions is at risk, scientists said. And this quandary has no simple solution.
    Astronomy missions that fall under NASA’s flagship program are big, expensive endeavors that aim to answer sophisticated questions about the solar system, galaxy and universe we live in. Flagship missions currently operating include the Hubble Space Telescope and the Chandra X-ray Observatory, and NASA’s next big space telescope — the $8.8 billion James Webb Space Telescope launching in 2018 — narrowly avoided escaped losing funding last year.
