How far above the surface of Earth would you weigh 63.6 percent of your surface weight?

  • Physics -

    If the new radius is R, and the earth's radius is r,

    .636 * Mmg/r^2 = = Mmg/R^2

    .636/r^2 = 1/R^2

    R = r/.797 = 1.25r

    plug in your favorite value for r, and figure the difference
