saturn has a mass of 5.68 x 10^26 kg and a radius of 6.03 x 10^7 m.

a) what would be the weight of a 65.0-kg person on the surface of saturn?

b) what would be the weight of a 65.0-kg person 1000 km above the surface of saturn?

• physics -

a) GM/R^2
where G is Newton's univdersal constant of gravity

b) Use the same formula, but with
R = 6.03*10^7 + 1.0*10^6 m = 6.13*10^7

• physics -

678N
