As a moon follows its orbit around a planet, the maximum gravitational force exerted on the moon by the planet exceeds the minimum gravitational force by 9.8%. Find the ratio rmax/rmin, where rmax is the moon's maximum distance from the center of the planet and rmin is the minimum distance.

  • physics -

    (rmin/rmax)^2 = Fmax/Fmin = 1.098
    rmin/rmax = 1.0479
    rmax/rmin = 0.9543
