Q. Gravitational acceleration on the surface of a planet is \frac{\sqrt{6}}{11} \mathrm{g}, where g is the gravitational acceleration on the surface of the earth. The average mass density of the planet is \frac{2}{3} times that of the Earth. If the escape speed on the surface of the earth is taken to be 11 \mathrm{kms}^{-1}, the escape speed on the surface of the planet in \mathrm{kms}^{-1}will be – [IIT-JEE 2010]

Sol. 3 Q. A binary star consists of two stars A \left(\operatorname{mass} 2.2 \mathrm{M}_{\mathrm{s}}\right) \text { and } \mathrm{B}\left(\mathrm{mass} 11 \mathrm{M}_{\mathrm{s}}\right), where MS is the mass of the sun. They are separated by distance d and are rotating about their centre of mass, which is stationary. The ratio of the total angular momentum of the binary star to the angular momentum of star B about the centre of mass is – [IIT-JEE 2010]

Sol. (B) Q. Two spherical planets P and Q have the same uniform density , masses $\mathbf{M}_{\mathrm{p}}$ and $\mathbf{M}_{\mathrm{Q}}$, and surface areas A and 4A, respectively. A spherical planet R also has uniform density  and its mass is ($\mathrm{M}_{\mathrm{p}}$ + $\mathbf{M}_{\mathrm{Q}}$). The escape velocities from the planets P, Q and R, are $\mathrm{V}_{\mathrm{p}}, \mathrm{V}_{\mathrm{Q}}$ and $\mathrm{V}_{\mathrm{R}}$, respectively.

Sol. (B,D) Escape velocity $=\sqrt{\frac{2 G M}{R}} \propto \sqrt{\frac{4}{3} \pi R^{3}} \propto \sqrt{A r e a}$ [since density of each planet is same]

Q. A planet of radius $\mathrm{R}=\frac{1}{10} \times(\text { radius of Earth })$ has the same mass density as Earth. Scientists dig a well of depth on it and lower a wire of the same length and of linear mass density $10^{-3}$ $\mathrm{kgm}^{-1}$ into it. If the wire is not touching anywhere, the force applied at the top of the wire by a person holding it in place is (take the radius of Earth = $6 \times 10^{6}$ m and the acceleration due to gravity on Earth is $10 \mathrm{ms}^{-2}$) – (A) 96 N (B) 108 N (C) 120 N (D) 150 N [JEE-Advance 2014]

Sol. (B) $\mathrm{E}_{\mathrm{G}}=\frac{4 \pi \mathrm{Gr} \rho}{3}$ $\mathrm{dF}=\mathrm{E}_{\mathrm{G}} \lambda \mathrm{dr}$ Q. A rocket is launched normal to the surface of the Earth, away from the Sun, along the line joining the sun and the Earth. The Sun is $3 \times 10^{5}$ times heavier than the Earth and is at a distance $2.5 \times 10^{4}$ times larger than the radius of the Earth. The escape velocity from Earth’s gravitational field is $\mathrm{v}_{\mathrm{e}}=11.2 \mathrm{km} \mathrm{s}^{-1}$. The minimum initial velocity (vs) required for the rocket to be able to leave the Sun-Earth system is closest to (Ignore the rotation and revolution of the Earth and the presence of any other planet) (A) $\mathrm{v}_{\mathrm{s}}=22 \mathrm{km} \mathrm{s}^{-1}$ (B) $\mathrm{v}_{\mathrm{s}}=72 \mathrm{km} \mathrm{s}^{-1}$ (C) $\mathrm{v}_{\mathrm{s}}=42 \mathrm{km} \mathrm{s}^{-1}$ (D) $\mathrm{v}_{\mathrm{s}}=62 \mathrm{km} \mathrm{s}^{-1}$ [JEE-Advance 2017]

Sol. (C)   Q. A planet of mass M, has two natural satellites with masses $\mathrm{m}_{1}$ and $\mathrm{m}_{2}$. The radii of their circular orbits are $\mathrm{R}_{1}$ and $\mathrm{R}_{2}$ respectively. Ignore the gravitational force between the satellites. Define $\mathrm{v}_{1}, \mathrm{L}_{1}, \mathrm{K}_{1}$ and $\mathrm{T}_{1}$ to be, respectively, the orbital speed, angular momentum, kinetic energy and time period of revolution of satellite 1 ; and $\mathrm{v}_{2}, \mathrm{L}_{2}, \mathrm{K}_{2}$ and $\mathrm{T}_{2}$ to be the corresponding quantities of satellite 2. Given $\mathrm{m}_{1} / \mathrm{m}_{2}=$ 2 and $\mathrm{R}_{1} / \mathrm{R}_{2}=1 / 4$, match the ratios in List-I to the numbers in List-II.  [JEE-Advance 2018]
