  1. Derive an expression for the variation of acceleration due to gravity above and below the surface of the Earth.
  2. Explain Kepler’s law with necessary diagrams.
  3. What is orbital velocity? Show that orbital velocity is independent of mass of the body.
  4. What is escape velocity? Obtain an expression for it and what is the value of escape velocity of the Earth.
  5. Hydrogen is in abundance around the sun but not around earth. Explain
  6. The magnitude of the force of gravity between two identical objects is given by F. If the mass of each object is doubled but the distance between them is halved, then find the new force of gravity between the objects.
  7. The ratio of mean distances of three planets from the sun is 0.5:1:1.5, then the square of time periods is in the ration of
