Calculate the force of gravity on same 1-kg mass if it were 6.4*106m above Earth's surface?


Expert Answer

Step 1

Given: Mass of the object, m1 = 1 kg Mass of the Earth, m2 = 6.0 × 1024 kg Radius of the Earth r = 6. 4 × 10³ m Distance of the object from the earth surface, h= 6.4 × 10° m

Step 2

Formula used: We know that gravitational force between two masses is given by G m1m2 (r+h)? Here, G is the gravitational constant mų is the mass of the object m2 is the mass of the Earth ris the radius of the Earth surface h is the distance of the object from the earth surface
