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.

  • Astronomy -

    (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?

  • Astronomy -

    Of th following stars, which is brightest?nova,sun,white dwarf,red giant.
