The value g = 9.81 m/s 2 is specific to the force of gravity on the surface of the Earth. The universal formula for the force of gravitational attraction is F = G m 1 m 2 r 2 where m 1 and m 2 are the masses of the two objects, r is the distance between the centers of the two objects, and G is the universal gravitation constant, G = 6.674 × 10 −11 N(m/kg) 2 . A. Research the diameters and masses of the Earth and Jupiter. B. Demonstrate that F = m (9.81 m/s 2 ) is a valid relationship on the surface of the Earth. C. Determine the force of gravity acting on a 1000 kg satellite that is 2000 miles above the surface of the Earth. D. One of the authors of this book has a mass of 200 lb m . If he was on the surface of Jupiter, what gravitational force in lb f would be acting on him?

Textbook Problem

The value g = 9.81 m/s2 is specific to the force of gravity on the surface of the Earth. The universal formula for the force of gravitational attraction is

F = G m 1 m 2 r 2

where m1 and m2 are the masses of the two objects, r is the distance between the centers of the two objects, and G is the universal gravitation constant, G = 6.674 × 10−11 N(m/kg)2.

A. Research the diameters and masses of the Earth and Jupiter.

B. Demonstrate that F = m(9.81 m/s2) is a valid relationship on the surface of the Earth.

C. Determine the force of gravity acting on a 1000 kg satellite that is 2000 miles above the surface of the Earth.

D. One of the authors of this book has a mass of 200 lbm. If he was on the surface of Jupiter, what gravitational force in lbf would be acting on him?
