Compared to the Sun's gravitational force on the Earth, what is the Sun's gravitational force on Jupiter.
Jupiter's average distance from the Sun=5AU
Earth's average distance from the Sun=1AU
Jupiter's mass is 300 times larger than Earth.
I think the answer is 25 times weaker, but I am not positive.
(Jupiter gravity)/(Earth gravity) = 300/5^2 = 12 times stronger.
The greater mass of Jupiter outweighs the its distance from the sun
How did you come up wth 25 times less?
Of th following stars, which is brightest?nova,sun,white dwarf,red giant.
