(a) Determine the total force on the spacecraft.

1 ? N

(b) What is the difference in the gravitational fields acting on the occupants in the nose of the ship and on those in the rear of the ship, farthest from the black hole? This difference in acceleration grows rapidly as the ship approaches the black hole. It puts the body of the ship under extreme tension and eventually tears it apart.

2 ? N/kg

b.) Front of ship radius g=GM/r^2 -back of ship radius g=GM/r^2
