Neutron stars are extremely dense objects with a mass comparable to the mass of the sun but a radius of only several thousand meters. Consider a neutron star of mass M = 1.99e+030 kg and a radius of R = 10 km.

g = 1.3279e12 m/s

Assuming uniform density, how much would 1.1 cubic centimeters of neutron star material weigh on the surface of the earth?
