Fragments hurl through space
Occasionally an asteroid is broken up into smaller pieces or fragments. These fragments hurl through space, and some of them even find their way to Earth.
What mechanism would allow a fragment to leave the orbit of its parent asteroid?

You have two capacitors, one with capacitance 10.5 oF and the other of unknown capacitance. You connect the two capacitors in series with a voltage difference of 325-V applied across the capacitors.
(a) What is the potential difference across the plates of the capacitor? V (b) What is the magnitude of the uniform electric field in the region between the plates?
An artillery shell is fired with an initial velocity of 300 m/s at 59.5° above the horizontal. To clear an avalanche, it explodes on a mountainside 41.0 s after firing. What are the x and y components of the shell where it explodes, relative t
A 17.0-g piece of Styrofoam carries a net charge of -0.75 µC and is suspended in equilibrium above the center of a large, horizontal sheet of plastic that has a uniform charge density on its surface. What is the charge per unit area on the p
A meter stick is held vertically with one end on the floor and is then allowed to fall. Find the speed of the other end when it hits the floor, assuming that the end on the floor does not slip. (Hint: Consider the stick to be a thin rod and use th
In our analysis of energy costs in transportation, we focussed on the "trip force" associated with stopping and starting, rolling resistance, and air drag and other aerodynamic (or hydrodynamic) effects.
The vehicle then slows at a constant rate of 1.2 m/s2 until it stops. (a) How much time elapses from start to stop? (b) How far does the vehicle move from start to stop?
Find the gauge pressure at a second point in the line if the cross-sectional area at the second point is twice that at the first. Please show all work.
A standing wave that corresponds to the fourth harmonic is set up on a string that is fixed at both ends. If the frequency of this standing wave is 440 HZ what is the frequency of the lowest-frequency standing wave that could be set up on this str
The rock reaches a maximum height of 1.40×103m above the surface of the planet before it falls back down. What was the initial speed of the rock as it left the astronaut's hand? (Glob has no atmosphere, so no energy is lost to air friction.)
