Neutron stars, such as the one at the center of the Crab Nebula, have about the same mass as our sun but a much smaller diameter.

If you weigh 665N on the earth, what would be your weight on the surface of a neutron star that has the same mass as our sun and a diameter of 19.0 km?
Take the mass of the sun to be = 1.991030 kg , the gravitational constant to be = 6.6710−11 , and the acceleration due to gravity at the earth's surface to be = 9.810 .

Express your weight in newtons.
