When opening the bottle in space, all the air that was initially in it will flow out due to the pressure difference. The inside of the bottle will then become approximatelly vacuum, so when you open it on Earth air will flow in it again. (Unless it's not sturdy enough (for example a plastic bottle), in which case it will be compressed/crumpelt before you ...

This article covers the question Radiation is divided into two categories - ionizing radiation and non-ionizing radiation. Ionizing radiation is radiation with sufficient energy to remove electrons from the orbits of atoms resulting in charged particles, and it is this type of radiation that is evaluated for purposes of radiation protection. ...

The speed of an electromagnetic wave is indeed independent of the speed of both the source and the receiver. However, this does not mean that the relative motion between the source and the receiver has no effect on the wave's properties. The effect that is being used is called the Doppler effect, and it is the fact that the received frequency of a wave will ...

If by "slow down" you mean "decelerate the rocket as it moves through space" the answer is no. Once the ship as begun traveling at a constant linear speed $v$ and begun rotation at a constant angular speed $\omega$ it will continue to move with a constant velocity (both linear and angular) in the absence of any net forces or torques. The object will have a ...

It can be proven that if you just want to know the motion the center of mass of a system of particles (or a continuous extended body), you can just calculate the vector sum of the force vectors on each particle (or the integral of the infinitesimal force on each infinitesimal bit of mass dm in a continuous extended body), and then treat this total force ...

I think there is no influence of rotation, regardless of rotation plane and direction vector. The center of mass will move with the same speed. Newton's First Law of motion should be enough to prove it: When viewed in an inertial reference frame, an object either remains at rest or continues to move at a constant velocity, unless acted upon by an ...
