on the surface of earth, a spacecraft has a mass of 2.00x10^4 kilograms. What is the mass of the spacecraft at a distance of one earth radius above earths surface?

  • physics -

    the mass of the spacecraft would be the same because mass doesn't change when distance from the earth changes. so the answer is 2.00x10^4 kg
