What is the gravitational field strength at a place 220km above Earth's surface, the altitude of many piloted space flights?

  • Physics - ,

    Newtons law of gravity:

    g=GMe/(radiusEarth + altitude)^2

  • Physics - ,

    k well i don't know what Me stands for or what the altitude is or how to find it.

  • Physics - ,

    You should know Newtons Law.

    Me is mass of the Earth.
    altitude is 220Km, given.

  • Physics - ,

    well my teacher cant teach so i dont. and i used the formula but i got a different answer then the back of the book. i don't get what im doing wrong.
    g=GMe/(radius Earth+altitude)^2
    g=(6.67x10*-11Nm^2/kg^2)x(5.98x10*24kg)/ (6.38X10*6m+0.22m)^2
    g= (3.99x10*14Nm^2/kg)/(4.07x10*13m^2)
    g=9.8N/kg
    the back of the book says 9.1N/kg
