    Earth 5.97*10^24 kg
    Moon 7.35*10^22 kg
    Sun 1.99*10^30 kg

    The average distance between the Earth and the Moon is 3.84*10^8 m. The average distance between the Earth and the Sun is 1.50*10^11 m. Use this information to answer the following questions.

    (A) Find the force of gravitational attraction F_earth/moon between the Earth and the Moon. Express your answer in newtons to three significant figures.

    (B) Find the force of gravitational attraction F_earth/sun between the Earth and the Sun. Express your answer in newtons to three significant figures.
