Assume this asteroid has the shape of a sphere. A rock sitting on the
surface of the asteroid has a weight of 100 newtons. What would the weight
of this rock be if it were moved to a distance above the surface equal to
the radius of the asteroid? It may be helpful to draw a picture to better
visualize what is going on. How is the mass of the rock affected by its
change in position?
