Question 1 of 20
1. Question
Figure shows the variation of energy with the orbit radius r of a satellite in a circular motion. Mark the correct statement.
Correct
Kinetic energy KE = GMm/2r
Potential energy PE = – GMm/r
And the total energy E = – GMm/2r
Kinetic energy is always positive and KE ∝ 1/r
Potential energy is negative and PE ∝ 1/r
Similarly total energy is also negative and E ∝ 1/r
Also E < PE
∴ A is kinetic energy, B is potential energy and C is total energy of the satellite.
Incorrect
Kinetic energy KE = GMm/2r
Potential energy PE = – GMm/r
And the total energy E = – GMm/2r
Kinetic energy is always positive and KE ∝ 1/r
Potential energy is negative and PE ∝ 1/r
Similarly total energy is also negative and E ∝ 1/r
Also E < PE
∴ A is kinetic energy, B is potential energy and C is total energy of the satellite.

In elliptical orbit un is at one of the foci hence the distance between the planet and sun changes as planet revolves hence linear speed, kinetic energy and potential energy of planet do not remain constant

Question 3 of 20
3. Question
Both earth and moon are subject to the gravitational force of the sun. As observed from the sun, the orbit of the moon
Correct
Moon is revolving around earth in almost circular orbit. Sun exerts gravitational pull on both, earth and moon. When observed from sun, the orbit of the moon will not be strictly elliptical because they total gravitational force (i.e., force due to earth on moon and force due to sun on moon) is not central.

Question 11 of 20
11. Question
A particle of mass M is at a distance a from the surface of a thin spherical shell of equal mass and having radius a.
Correct
At centre, field is zero due to shell but non zero due to particle
∴ E_{centre} = due to particle

12. Question
A solid sphere of uniform density and radius R applies a gravitational force of attraction equal to F_{1} on a particle placed at a distance 3R from the centre of the sphere. A spherical cavity of radius R/2 is now made in the sphere as shown in the figure. The sphere with cavity now applies a gravitational force F_{2} on the same particle. The ratio F_{2}/F_{1} is

Question 17 of 20
17. Question
Assertion From a solid sphere of radius R, a hole of radius R/2 is cut as shown in figure. To find the magnitude of gravitational potential and gravitational field strength at O, we can directly subtract Potential due to hole (before removing) from potential due to whole sphere (before removing). The same can be done to find field strength at O, although potential is a scalar quantity and field strength is a vector quantity.
Reason In gravity, it is done like this. It makes no difference, whether the field strength is added/subtracted by vector method or by scalar method.
Correct
Incorrect
