A 715 kg object is lifted from the surface of the earth to a height of 880 kg above the surface of the earth.

Calculate the increase in gravitational potential energy using the exact expression and compare it with the approximate expression using g=9.81. Give the magnitude of the difference between the two expressions divided by the exact result (that is the relative error) as your answer. Use 6.0x10^24 kg, 6.4x10^6 m and 6.67x10^-11 for the earth mass, earth radius and the Gravitational Constant G, respectively.
