Explanation:

Gravity is a force by which one object attracts the other object towards its center.

Gravity keeps all of planet in the orbit around the sun. Higher the mass of the object or body , more will be the force of gravity.

Sun has more mass as compared to the other planets. The Sun pulls the all other planets towards its center. Therefore, all planets revolves around the Sun.

Therefore, the planets are pulled towards the Sun by gravity.

Question
Which of the following would reduce the resistance of a metal wire? increasing its length increasing its temperature increasing its thickness all of the above
Solution 1

increasing its thickness

Explanation:

there are four major factors that affect the resistance of a metal wire, they are;

1. the length of the wire: the longer the length of a wire the higher the resistance

recall R=ρL/A

the above equation shows a direct relation between resistance and length

2. the temperature of the wire: the higher the temperature of a wire when heated up, the higher the resistance of the wire

3. the thickness or width of the wire: the higher the thickness the lower the resistance.

from the equation in 1 above, there is an inverse relationship between resistance and area(diameter inclusive) of a wire

4. the material of the wire: different wires have different values of resistivity(ρ). steel  shows higher levels of resistivity than copper

therefore, increasing thickness reduces resistance

Solution 2
All of the above can affect the resistance of a metal

Question
A surface receiving sound is moved from its original position to a position three times farther away from the source of the sound. The intensity of the received sound thus becomes A. nine times as high. B. three times as low. C. nine times as low. D. three times as high.
Solution 1
By Inverse Square law of Intensity of the sound.

The Intensity is inversely proportional to the square of the distance of the source.

So if it is moved three times away, it will be reduced by nine times.

So answer is  (C) Nine times as low
Solution 2

C) Nine times as low.

Explanation:

Sound intensity level also identified as acoustic intensity is described as the energy taken by sound waves per unit area in a path perpendicular to that area. The SI unit of intensity, which involves sound intensity, is the watt per square meter (W/m2). The loudness of a sound describes the intensity of any given sound to the intensity at the start of sound. It is marked in decibels (dB).

Question
As an astronaut travels far away from earth, her weight. a. Decrease because gravity decreases. b. Decreases because the mass decreases. c. Increases because gravity increases. d. Remains the same because her mass remains the same.
Solution 1
Option a. decreases because gravity decreases.

Remebmer that the weight is the product of the mass time gravity.

Mass does not change. Gravity decreases as the distance to the center of the earth decreases.
Solution 2

Decrease because gravity decreases.

Explanation:

According to second law of motion, the weight of an object is given by the product of its mass and its acceleration.

i.e. W = m g

g is acceleration due to gravity. Here, g = 10 m/s²

Mass of an object remains constant everywhere while its weight varies. We know that g on the surface is given by : As distance increases, the value of g decreases. As a result, the weight of an astronaut decreases.

So, the correct option is (a) "Decrease because gravity decreases".

Question
Which statement is false? a. Fusion involves the combination of two smaller atoms into a larger atom. b. Fission involves the splitting of an atom into smaller atoms. c. Fission and fusion are two processes that release very little amounts of energy. Rewrite it so it is true?
Solution 1
The false statement is:
C) Fission and fusion are two processes that release very little amounts of energy.
We can rewrite it so it is true, as follows:
Fission and fusion are two processes that release very large amounts of energy. We can see this by looking at the famous Einstein's equivalence between mass and energy. In fact, during these two processes, part of the mass of the initial products is converted into energy, according to where m is the mass converted into energy in the process, E is the amount of energy released, and c is the speed of light. We see that the factor is a huge number ( , so is of order ), therefore even if only a very small mass is converted in these two processes, the amount of energy released is huge.
Solution 2
The last one is false
This is it rewritten: fission and fusion are two processes that release vast amount of energy
