GIVEN:

m = 1.25 kg

W = 8.35 N

Therefore, they want the acceleration. Would I use this equation g = Fg/m?

**drwls**, Thursday, December 24, 2009 at 5:44pmUse weight = M g', where g' is the acceleration of gravity at that location.

g' = W/M = 6.68 m/s^2

That is less than the 9.81 m/s^2 value at the Earth's surface. The object is probably in an Earth satallite.
