**Kepler Problems **

**1) Mars is 2.278 x 10**^{8}**
km from the sun and takes 687 days to orbit the sun. If Neptune
is 4.494 x 10**^{9}** km
from the sun, how long is its year in days? (Use Kepler's third
law. Set two equations equal to each other and cancel what you
can. You should be left with only T and r to various powers.)**

**2) The outermost
particles in Saturn's rings are 1.35 x 10**^{5}**
km from its center and are moving at 17 km/s. Find the mass of
Saturn. (Use Newton's law of gravitation (force) and the radial
accelation to find the radial force. Set those equal and solve
for mass.)**

**3) Find the location of
the place between the Earth and the moon where the gravitational
force on an object of mass m would cancel. (Call the total
distance, 3.84 x 10**^{5}**
km D and the distance this place is from the moon x. Write the
two force equations and set them equal. Call the mass of the
earth m**_{e}** and the
mass of the moon m**_{m}**.
The mass of the earth is 5.98 x 10**^{24}**
kg and the mass of the moon is 7.36 x 10**^{22}**
kg.)**

the magnitude of d? (b) What is the angle of d in relation to
zero degrees? (c) Write d in full vector form.**
