3) A satellite is orbiting Earth at a distance of 57 kilometers. The satellite has a mass of 96 kilograms. What is the force between the planet and the satellite? (Hint: Don't forget that the distance between them in the equation represents the distance to the center of the earth, you might have to do a bit of Googling to determine the radius of the earth as well as the mass of the earth).

i'm thinking you multiply the satelite's mass by 9.8 (N/kg) then what?
