Homework Help: Math

Posted by Halle on Monday, June 1, 2009 at 6:45pm.

The acceleration due to gravity is inversely proportional to the square of the distance from the centre of Earth. The acceleration due to gravity for a satellite orbiting 7000 km above the centre of Earth is 8.2 m/s^2.
a) write a formula for this relationship.

b) at what height will the acceleration due to gravity be 6 m/s^2?

I do not know how to approach this question because.. well all I know is that this function needs to be a rational function because this is the topic we are on. Please help and describe why you are doing the steps. Thanks in advance!!
