What would be the weight of 22.0kg dog at the equator on Saturn's surface?
(Saturn's mass equals 5.69 X 10^26kg, Saturn's equatorial radius equals 6.03 X 10^7m, Earths mass equals 5.97 X 10^24)

  • physics -

    Weight= GMs*Md/radius^2

  • physics -

    what number goes into M and d?

  • physics -

    Ms is the mass of Saturn, Md is mass of the dog. Are you not familiar with the Law of Gravitation?
    d is the distance the dog is from the center of Saturn (ie, radius).

    You need to look this up in the text.
