true
there is no atmospheric pressure on the moon
true
buoyancy is always an upward direction
true
a hydraulic press is not a good way to multiply energy

constant
if satelite is in eliptical orbit, its total energy remains ________
escape speed
critical starting speed that permits a perjectile to escape earth
mass of the planet it escapes from , and the radius
escape speed depends on
less
your weight on a very tall lader would be
increase

a baseball would reach the max range when the tossing angle is horizontal at
projectile motion
constant acceleration in verticle direction
constant speed in vertical direction
constant acceleration of g
motion of satelite
a projectile motion
gravity force
the satelite orbits around the earth because of
if the satelite is in circular orbit
- kinetic energy remains constant
- potential energy remains constant
- gravity forvce is perpendicular to direction of motion
8000 m/s
to follow earth, a satelite must have a speed of ____ in horizontal direction
