Find the magnitude of the gravitational attraction force that the earth exerts on a 62-kilogram astronaut who is 8.00 X 10^7 meters away from the center of the earth.

Useful numbers: M^earth=5.98 X 10^24kg; G=6.67 X 10^-11 N*m^2kg^-2

Please walk me through your steps, don't just suggest a formula-thank you.
