Sample Text:
For objects high above Earth’s surface, such as a satellite, an alternative must be used, because g varies with distance from the surface as seen in the table below. Altitude (km) g (m/s2) 1 000 7.33 2 000 5.68 3 000 4.53 4 000 3.70 5 000 3.08 6 000 2.60 7 000 2.23 8 000 1.93 9 000 1.69 10 000 1.49 50 000 0.13 The gravitational potential energy associated with an object of mass m at a distance r from the center of Earth is: E ` = −G m > r m : = −G r àJF8Ng\Ö m *N48L l4 ì m *N48L[F ëuÖ\8 \Ög84Ö This expression shows that the gravitational potential energy for any pair of objects varies as > 4 . E ` = −G ì , ì the center Z of 4 Earth. is valid for the special case where the zero level for potential energy is at an infinite distance from The potential energy is negative because the forc...
