1. An automobile starts from rest and accelerates to a final velocity in two stages along a straight road. Each stage occupies the same amount of time. In stage 1, the magnitude of the car's acceleration is 2.99 m/s2. The magnitude of the car's velocity at the end of stage 2 is 2.20 times greater than it is at the end of stage 1. Calculate the magnitude of the acceleration in stage 2. 2. The Space Shuttle travels at a...

The space shuttle typically travels in a circular orbit at an altitude of 500 km above the Earth's surface. The Earth itself has a radius of about 6400 km. The shuttle can travel in a circular orbit, at constant speed, without any need for the rocket engine to be on, if it travels at just the right speed (a) Given that the value of g is 8.50 m/s2 at an altitude of 500 km, determine the value of the shuttle's...
