A space probe lands on the icy surface of Europa, a moon of Jupiter. It weighs a set of known masses. The results are shown below.

Mass (kg) 0.1 0.2 0.3 0.4 0.5
Weight (N) 0.15 0.30 0.36 0.55 0.68

a) i) Plot a graph of this data on the axes given (done)

ii) Use your graph to estimate the gravitional field strength at Europa's surface.

b) Suggest why several masses were weighed, not just one.
