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?

A potter's wheel-a thick stone disk of radius 0.500 m and mass 125 kg-is freely rotating at 50.0 rev/min. The potter can stop the wheel in 6.00 s by pressing a wet rag against the rim and exerting a radially inward force of 76.0 N. Find the effect
What is the total momentum before the collision? (Find the momentum of each slider before the collision and then add them together.)
At what angle from the beam axis will the first order peak occur if the tube emits light with wavelength of 516.6 nm? At what angle will the second order peak occur?
What is their acceleration over this 1.7 cm length? Answer in units of m/s2 How long is the electron in the accelerating region? Answer in units of s
a) Calculate the speed of the 4.59 kg block right after the collision. b) Calculate the change in the total kinetic energy of the objects from the collision.
sketch the orbit transfer, label 2 trajectories, noting location and direction of velocity change delta V
Is there any difference between the intensive properties of saturated vapor at a given temperature and the vapor of a saturated mixture at the same temperature?
A uniform line charge extends from x = - 2.7 cm to x = + 2.7 cm and has a linear charge density of = 5.9 nC/m. (a) Find the total charge. Find the electric field on the y axis at the following distances.
An electric dipole consists of charges +e and -e separated by 0.40 nm. It is in an electric field of strength 2.50 106 N/C. The (imaginary) line connecting the two charges forms a 32° angle with the electric field.
A ball is thrown toward a cliff of height with a speed of 35 and an angle of 60 above horizontal. It lands on the edge of the cliff 3.7 later. What is the ball's impact speed?
