You may disregard the gravitational attraction between the beer can and the space station. a) In what direction and with what velocity relative to the station should the beer can be thrown? b) What is the period, size and shape of the beer can's orbit, relative to the space station? 45 Space Habitat Baseball (Princeton) On Earth a baseball player can hit a ball 120 m by giving it an initial angle of 45° to the horizontal. Take the acceleration due to gravity as Suppose the batter repeats this exercise in a space 'habitat' that has the form of a circular cylinder of radius R = 10 km and has an angular velocity about the axis of the cylinder sufficient to give an apparent gravity of at radius R.

Hint: To retrieve it at this limiting time, she must “reach down” to the satellite with the speed of light, bring it back at the speed of light, and wait indefinitely long for its return. , the rectilinear motion) for which the acceleration in the proper reference frame (at each instant of time) remains constant. a) Show that the 4-velocity b) Show that the condition for such a motion is where is the usual three dimensional acceleration. 10). TLFeBOOK RELATIVITY 39 a) Write the relativistic equations for momentum and energy conservation.
