F = ma

v=speed (or velocity)

d=distance

t=time

p=momentum

m=mass

a=acceleration

Equation summary: linear motion
v = 2pr/P

C = 2pr

L=mvr

Fc = mv2/r

v = speed

P = period

C = circumference

L = angular momentum

m = mass

Fc = Centrifugal Force

Eqn summary: circular motion
Fg = mg

Fg = G Mm/d2

g = GM/R2

W= mgd

vesc = Sqrt[2GM/R]

Fg = force of gravity (weight)

m = mass

g = acceleration of gravity

d = distance from mass m to M

G = gravitation constant

M = mass (e.g. of planet)

R = radius (e.g. of planet)

W = Work against gravity

vesc = escape speed

Eqn summary: gravity
M+m = a3/P2

M+m = combined mass

a = semi-major axis

P = Period

E = h f

FE = E/At = s T4

lmax=2.8 x 106/T

Waves

l = wavelength

f = frequency

s= speed of wave (= c for light)

Photon of light

E = Energy

h = Planck’s constant

(energy E per area A and time t)

T = temperature (in K)

lmax = wavelength of maximum intensity (in nm)

Eqn summary: waves & light
Doppler shift
• ex#1: l = 500 nm ; lobs = 550 nm
• Dl = lobs-l =50 nm
• v = (50/500) c = c/10 = +30,000 km/s
• Dl>0 => Redshift => moving away from obs.
• ex#2: l = 500 nm ; lobs = 495 nm
• Dl = lobs-l = -5 nm
• v = (-5/500) c = -c/100 = -3000 km/s
• Dl<0 => Blueshift => moving toward obs.
a = 360o s/2pd

aarcsec = sau/dpc

a = 2.5 x 105arcsec (l/D)

a = angular size

s = linear size

d = distance

aarcsec = parallax angle in arcsec

sau = separation size in au

dpc = distance in parsec (pc)

a = diffraction limit resolution for telescope of diameter D and light of wavelength l

Angle, distance, parallax, resolution
• If element “x” decays with half-life th, then:
• # of x at time t: Nx(t) = Nx(t=0) 2-t/th
• & fraction of x at t: fx(t) = Nx(t)/Nx(t=0) = 2-t/th
• To solve for time t, take Log of both sides:
• Log(fx) = - (t/th) Log(2) = (t/th) Log(1/2) =>
• t = th Log(fx)/Log(1/2)
Luminosity & magnitude
• Luminosity: L = sT4 4pR2
• or: L/Lsun= (T/Tsun)4 (R/Rsun)2
• App. Brightness = L/4pD2
• Abs. Magnitude = +5 - 2.5 log(L/Lsun)
• App. Mag. = Abs. Mag. + 5 log(D/10pc)
Gravitational Escape
• Grav. Escape energy: Eg = GMm/R
• Kinetic energy: Ek = mV2/2
• Ek=Eg => Escape speed: Vesc = Sqrt[2GM/R]
• For Sun: Vesc ~= 600 km/s
• Thus: Vesc ~= 600 km/s Sqrt[M/R]

(where M,R in solar units)

Black Holes
• Vesc = Sqrt[2GM/R]
• R = 2GM/(Vesc)2
• For black hole, Vesc = c = speed of light
• RBH = 2GM/c2 (a.k.a. “Schwarzschild radius”)
• For object with mass of Sun, RBH = 3 km
• Thus in general, RBH = 3 km (M/Msun)

### Orbital motion

Galactic Rotation speed vs. mass
• V2 ~ M/r
• V ~ Sqrt[M/r]
• M(r) ~ V2 r
• V ~ Dl
Hubble Law & Redshfit
• Doppler shift: V = c Dl/lo
• V= velocity
• c = speed of light
• Dl = l-lo=Doppler shift from rest wavelength lo
• Hubble’s law: V = Ho d
• d= distance; Ho= Hubble’s constant

Current number of civilizations

xflife

xfciv

xfnow

“Drake Equation”

NHP = number of habitable planets in the Galaxy

flife = fraction of habitable planets which actually contain life

fciv = fraction of life-planets where a civilization has at some time arisen

fnow = fraction of civilizations which exist now
