Determine the value for the acceleration due to gravity at the surface of the planet Mars, given the following data: Mass of Mars = 6 .42 x 10^23 kg Radius of Mars = 3.37 x 10^6 m

Thanks!

  • PHYSICS -

    g(mars) = G M/R^2

    G is the universal gravity constant
    = 6.67*10^-11 N m^2/kg^2

    Do the calculation
