THE UNIVERSAL LAW OF GRAVITATION

According to Newton’s law of gravitation, each body attracts other body with a force that is directly proportional to the product of their masses and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them.

Let m 1 and m 2 be the masses of two bodies and r be the separation between them.

F

Here, G is the constant of proportionality which is called universal gravitational constant. The value of G is 6.67 × 10 11 N m 2 kg 2 . The direction of the force F is along the line joining the two particles.

The gravitational force between two particles is independent of the presence of other bodies or the properties of the intervening medium.

Gravitational force is a conservative force therefore work done in displacing a body from one place to another is independent of the path followed. It depends only on the initial and final positions.

The gravitational force obeys Newton’s third law i.e. F 12 = –F 21

GRAVITY

It is defined as the force of attraction exerted by the earth towards its centre on a body lying on or near the surface of the earth.

It is merely a special case of gravitation and is also called as earth’s gravitational pull.

It is the measure of weight of the body. The weight of the body = mass (m) × acceleration due to gravity (g) = mg.

The unit of weight of the body will be the same as that of force. It is a vector quantity. It is always directed towards the centre of the earth.

KEPLER’S LAWS OF PLANETARY MOTION

First law (law of orbits) : All planets move in elliptical orbits with the sun situated at one of the foci of the ellipse.

Second law (law of areas) : The radius vector drawn from the sun to the planet sweeps out equal areas in equal intervals of time i.e. the areal velocity of the planet (or the area swept out by the planet per unit time) around the sun is constant i.e., areal velocity dA

According to Kepler’s second law, the speed of the planet is maximum, when it is closest to the sun and is minimum when the planet is farthest from the sun.

Third law (law of periods) : The square of the time period of revolution of a planet around the sun is directly proportional to the cube of semi major axis of the elliptical orbit i.e. T 2 a 3 where a is the semi major axis of the elliptical orbit of the planet around the sun.

GRAVITATIONAL FIELD

the body is

Intensity of gravitational field is a vector quantity. Its dimensional formula is [M 0 LT 2 ].

Unit of intensity of gravitational field in SI system is

N kg 1 and in CGS system is dyne g 1 .

gravitational field of a body is defined as the amount

of

work done in bringing a unit mass from infinity

to

that point. It is denoted by symbol V.

The direction of orbital speed of the satellite at an instant is along the tangent to the orbital path of satellite at that instant.
