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?

Three point charges are located on a circular arc as shown. (a) What is the total electric field at P, the center of the arc? (b) Find the electric force that would be exerted on a -5.00-nC point charge placed at P.
An interesting (but oversimplified) model of an atom pictures an electron "in orbit" around a proton. Suppose this electron is moving in a circular orbit of radius 0.5 nm and the force that makes this circular motion possible is the electric forc
Calculate the allowable internal design pressure at 72% design factor for an 18 in. pipeline, wall thickness 0.375 in. and pipe material API 5LX-46. What is the hydrotest pressure range for this pipeline?
If the image of the truck is approaching the vertex of the mirror at a speed of 1.5mn/s when the truck is 2.0 m away, what is the speed of the truck relative to the highway?
In a container of negligible mass, 0.200 kg of ice at an initial temperature of 40.0 C is mixed with mass m of water that as an initial temperature of 80.0 C. No heat is lost to the surroundings. If the final temperature of the system is 20.0C, Wh
Limit your drawing to the region between the plates, avoiding their edges, and draw the lines for surfaces that are 10.0 V apart, starting at the low-potential plate.
What is the potential difference across each capacitor? Express your answer using two significant figures. Enter your answers numerically separated by a comma.
A bullet weighing 50 grams and traveling at 200 m/s is shot into a stationary block of wood weighing 4 kg where it lodges. Determine how much each of the following changes from before the bullet strike to after the bullet stops for the system defi
The source at the origin emits four times as much power as the other source. Where on the x axis are the two sounds equal in intensity?
A molecule of DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) is 2.16 µm long. The ends of the molecule become singly ionized: negative on one end, positive on the other. The helical molecule acts like a spring and compresses 1.09% upon becoming charged. Determ
