Gravitational Force Problems
Q 1. A block of wood is kept on a tabletop. The mass of the wooden block is 5 kg and its dimensions are 40 cm × 20 cm × 10 cm. Find the pressure exerted by the wooden block on the tabletop if it is made to lie on the tabletop with its sides of dimensions –
(a) 20 cm × 10 cm
(b) 40 cm × 20 cm
Q 2. The mass of the earth is 6 × 1024 kg and that of the moon is 7.4 × 1022 kg. If the distance between the earth and the moon is 3.84×105 km, calculate the force exerted by the earth on the moon. (Take G = 6.7 × 10–11 N m²/kg²)
Q 3. Calculate the value of g, if universal gravitational constant (G) = 6.7 × 10–11 N m²/kg²; mass of the earth (M) = 6 × 1024 kg, and radius of the earth (R) = 6.4 × 106 m.
Q 4. The mass of an object is 10 kg. What is its weight on the earth?
Q 5. The volume of 50 g of a substance is 20 cm³. If the density of water is 1 g/cm³, will the substance float or sink?
Q 6. The volume of a 500 g sealed packet is 350 cm³. Will the packet float or sink in water if the density of water is 1 g/cm³? What will be the mass of the water displaced by this packet?
Q 7. The weight of the man on earth is 150 N and on a certain planet is 25 N. Take g=10m/s² on earth
(a) Find the mass of the man on earth and planet
(b) Find the acceleration due to gravity on the planet
