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?
this is hard to answer, but because it is 80 newtons, the asteroid falls into jupiters hands.
