Question

The lunar werewolves have decided to take over the earth on Halloween. The werewolves have decided to flip the moon so that the full moon lasts longer on earth. How fast does the earth spin after the moon is flipped?

The moon is a spherical body. The phases of the moon i.e. from the new moon to the full moon happens due to the position of the moon in the Earth's orbit. When the moon comes exactly in between the Earth and the Sun, we see a new moon because the illuminated part is facing the sun. Now even if we flip the moon, the illuminated part will still be facing away from the Earth just that the side of the moon will change. Now as the moon moves away from that position the moon becomes visible bit by bit. This the Earth's spin won't be affected at all.

The idea of a spaceport orbiting Earth is an attractive proposition for launching probes and/or manned missions to the outer planets of the solar system. Suppose sucha "platform" has been constructed, and orbits Earth at a distance of 490 km above Earth's surface. Your research team is launching a lunar probe in an orbit that hasits perigee at the spaceport's orbital radius, and its apogee at the Moon's orbital radius.(a) To launch the probe successfully, first determine the orbital speed...

Newton’s Cannon Imagine you fired a cannonball such that the range of that ball was slightly longer than the radius of the Earth. As that ball fell back down, it would miss the ground and continue to fall. If we can ignore any air resistance or collisions with other objects, then we can say the ball would continue to fall forever, just missing the ground, and thus be in orbit. Assume all orbits here are perfectly circular and pretend that...
