IMAGINE- a building 6400km. high. On the ground floor, a person weighs 175lbs when he steps on a spring scale how much would the man weigh on the same scale if he were standing at the top floor? HINT: Note that 6400km is also the radius of the earth so that the top floor is 2Re from the earths center. Think about what this means for Fgrav before you start plugging in numbers or making conversions
