Homework Help: Physics Number 3 (Online w/ no teacher)

Posted by Katie on Monday, October 27, 2008 at 8:52am.

Many people mistakenly believe that the astronauts that orbit the Earth are “above gravity.” Calculate g for space-shuttle territory, 200 kilometers above the Earth’s surface. Earths’ mass is 6 X 10 to the 24th and its radius is 6.38 X 10 to the 6th (6380 km). Your answer is what percentage of 9.8 m/s squared?

My answer was: 6.27 X 10 to the -1
