A satellite whose mass is M, is revolving in circular orbit of radius r aroud the earth. Time of revolution of satellite is
Correct Answer : a
Explanation : Let the satellite of mass ms is revolving around the Earth of mass me at a distance of r then the centripetal force will be given by:
F_{c} = m_{s}v^{2}/r
where v is velocity of satellite. This force is equal to gravitational force between satellite and earth. Therefore
(m_{s}v^{2})/r = (Gm_{s}m_{e})/r^{2}
v = (Gm_{e}/r)^{1/2}
Now, period of the satellite is given by:
T = 2πr/v
= 2π(r^{3}/Gm_{e})^{1/2}
{2π is constant}
Therefore T is proportional to 2π(r^{3}/Gm_{e})^{1/2}

The practice of appointing educated persons to join under government began more than a hundred and thirty years ago as a method of encouraging people to go in for the new system of education that had been established by the colonial administration. It worked well till about 1921 because expansion of jobs under the government could still keep pace with the output of the educational system. But since then, the undesirable consequences of this approach have come to the fore. To begin with, it over emphasizes the bread and butter objective of education and makes it a ladder which enables the ambitious to climb into privilege, even as it devalues the academic objectivethe development of individuals dedicated to the pursuit of scholarship. Moreover, hunt for a place in the privileged sector or a wellpaid and secure job in the organized sector creates immense pressure for the expansion of secondary and higher education because they grow more in terms of the large numbers of aspirants for jobs rather than in relation to the small number of jobs available. This necessarily leads to an overproduction of college graduates and to largescale unemployment of the educated.
