**bobpursley**, Monday, November 1, 2010 at 6:00pmon Earth, weight= mg

at the higher altitude,

weight= mg* (re/(re+800))^2 where re is the radius of earth in km.

**Damon**, Monday, November 1, 2010 at 6:01pm80 * 9.81 = weight on surface where R = Rearth

weight * R^2 = constant = G m M

weight at Rearth +500,000 meters

weight*(Rearth+5*10^5)^2 = 80*9.81 * Rearth^2

so

weight up there = 80*9.81 (Rearth)^2/(Reart+5*10^5)^2
