PHYSICS
Two satellites are in circular orbits around the Earth. Satellite A is at an altitude equal to the Earth’s radius, while satellite B is at an altitude equal to twice the Earth’s radius. What is the ratio of their periods, $T_B/T_A$?
PHYSICS
A plane starting from rest takes 15.0 s to take of after speeding over a distance of 450 m on the runway with constant acceleration. Find the take-of velocity
PHYSICS
In the complex notation there is a clever device for finding the time average of the product. Suppose $f(\mathbf r,t)=A\cos(\mathbf{k\cdot r}-\omega t+\delta_a)$ and $g(\mathbf r,t)=B\cos(\mathbf{k\cdot r}-\omega t+\delta_b)$. Show that $<fg>=(1/2)\Re(\tilde f\tilde g^*)$, where the star denotes complex conjugation. [Note that this only works if the two waves have the same $\mathbf k$ and $\omega$, but they need not have the same amplitude or phase.] For example, $$ <u>=\dfrac{1}{4}\Re\bigg{(}\epsilon_0\tilde{\mathbf{E}}\cdot\tilde{\mathbf E}^*+\dfrac{1}{\mu_0}\tilde{\mathbf{B}}\cdot\tilde{\mathbf B}^*\bigg{)}\qquad\mathrm{and}\qquad <S>=\dfrac{1}{2\mu_0}\Re(\tilde{\mathbf E}\times\tilde{\mathbf B}^*). $$
