Today we started looking at motion on a larger scale, the motion of planets and orbiting bodies. This motion follows the same laws as we have been studying on Earth, namely Newton's laws of motion. We also learned about Newton's Law of Universal Gravitation and how it works to create the uniform circular motion of planets. Examples 24 and 25 were covered. Tomorrow we will finish up these notes with examples 26 and 27. A reminder of the lab quiz we have tomorrow for lab 3.1. Make sure to study the analysis question for the lab.
I am going to move the second in class assignment for unit to Tuesday, Nov 19.
