Detailed Solution for 31 Year NEET Previous Year Questions: Gravitation - 1 - Question 1

Since orbital velocity of satellite is

it does not depend upon the mass of the satellite.
Therefore, both satellites will move with same speed.

31 Year NEET Previous Year Questions: Gravitation - 1 - Question 2

A roller coaster is designed such that riders experience “weightlesness” as they go round the top of a hill whose radius of curvature is 20 m.The speed of the car at the top of the hill is between: [2008]

Detailed Solution for 31 Year NEET Previous Year Questions: Gravitation - 1 - Question 2

For the riders to experience weightlessness at the top of the hill, the weight of the radius must be balanced by the centripetal force.

Hence, the speed of the car should be between 14 ms–1 and 15 ms–1.

31 Year NEET Previous Year Questions: Gravitation - 1 - Question 3

The figure shows elliptical or bit of a planet m about the sun S. The shaded area SCD is twice the shaded area SAB. If t1 is the time for the planet to move from C to D and t2 is the time to move from A to B then : [2009]

Detailed Solution for 31 Year NEET Previous Year Questions: Gravitation - 1 - Question 3

According to Kepler ’s law, the areal velocity of a planet around the sun always remains constant.
SCD : A1–  t1  (areal velocity constant)
SAB : A2 – t2
