Find the acceleration due to gravity on a planet whose mass is four times the mass of Earth and whose radius is half the radius of Earth (g is the acceleration due to gravity on Earth).

  • physics -

    Since g is proportional to M/R^2, the more massive and smaller planet would have a g value 16 times higher than Earth's.
