The value of acceleration due to gravity (g) on a point
10,000 kilometers above sea level is about
1.49 meters/second2. How much will an object, which weighs
98 newtons on the surface of Earth, weigh on this point? The value of acceleration due to gravity on Earth is 9.8 meters/second2.

  • Physics -

    W=98*1.49/9.8 N

  • Physics -

    14.9 Newtons
