Which of the following best describes the strength of the gravitational force on Earth due to your mass?

A) It is zero as long as you are standing on Earth’s
surface.

B) It is much greater than Earth’s gravitational force
on you because Earth’s mass is so great.

C) It is equal to the magnitude of the force that Earth
exerts on you.

D) It is negligible compared to the force of gravity on
you because your mass is so small when compared
to Earth’s mass.
