2. A 10 kg monkey is 10^6 m above the earth's surface.
(a) What is its weight there?
(b) What is its mass there?
Please see the attached file for detailed solution.
1. (a) Calculate the gravitational acceleration on the surface of Mars and
The gravitational acceleration is
Where gravitational constant G = 6.674 10-11 m3 • kg-1 • ...
The solution explains the difference between the weight and mass. It also shows how to calculate the weight on the surface of Mars and above Earth's surface.
