Father’s gravitational force on the baby is:

Jupiter’s gravitational force on the baby is:

**(c)** What should be the father’s weight, so that he exerts the same force on the baby as that of Jupiter? *****this section is not included in the Reference material*

Discussion

Other objects in the room and the hospital building also exert similar gravitational forces. (Of course, there could be an unknown force acting, but scientists first need to be convinced that there is even an effect, much less that an unknown force causes it.)Reference : OpenStax College,College Physics.

Calculate the change in length of the upper leg bone (the femur) when a **70.0 kg** man supports **62.0 kg** of his mass on it, assuming the bone to be equivalent to a uniform rod that is **45.0 cm** long and **2.00 cm** in radius.

Strategy

The force is equal to the weight supported:

and the cross-sectional area of the upper leg bone(femur) is:

To find the change in length we use the Young’s modulus formula. The Young’s modulus reference value for a bone under compression is known to be **9×10 ^{9} N/m^{2}**. Now,all quantities except

**Î”L**are known. Thus:

Discussion

This small change in length seems reasonable, consistent with our experience that bones are rigid. In fact, even the rather large forces encountered during strenuous physical activity do not compress or bend bones by large amounts. Although bone is rigid compared with fat or muscle, several of the substances listed in Table 5.3(*see reference below*) have larger values of Youngâ€™s modulus Y . In other words, they are more rigid.

Astrology, that unlikely and vague pseudoscience, makes much of the position of the planets at the moment of oneâ€™s birth. The only known force a planet exerts on Earth is gravitational.

(a)Calculate the gravitational force exerted on a4.20 kgbaby by a100 kgfather0.200 maway at birth (he is assisting, so he is close to the child).(b)Calculate the force on the baby due to Jupiter if it is at its closest distance to Earth, some6.29e+11 maway. How does the force of Jupiter on the baby compare to the force of the father on the baby?
