Question

G = 6.67 ×10−11 m3/kg/s2.

What is the force of gravity due to the Moon on a 52.0 kg ASTR 110 student standing on the equator during Spring Break. DATA: mean distance to the Moon 3.84×108 meters; mass of the Moon 7.36 × 1022 kg.

Step 1

The expression for the force of gravity due to the Moon on the student is,

Step 2

Here, F is the force of gravity due to the Moon on the student, G is the gravitational constant, M is the mass of the moon, m is the mass of the student r is the radius of the moon, R is the distance between the moon’s surface and the student and D is the distance between the center of moon and the student.

The force of gravity due to the Moon on the student is,

Step 3

The force of gravity due to the Moon on the...
