The radius of planet is R. A satellite revolves around it in a circular orbit of radius r with angular speed 'w'. The acceleration due to gravity on the planet's surface will be

\[(a)\;\frac{r^3w}{R} \quad (b)\;\frac{r^3w^2}{R^2} \quad (c)\;\frac{r^2w^3}{R^2} \quad (d)\;\frac{r^2w^2}{R} \]

1 Answer

Let M be mass of planet and m mass of satellite
But $ g= \large\frac{GM}{R^2}$
$\therefore g= \large\frac{r^3w^2}{R^2}$
Hence d is the correct answer.
