2. Saturn has a radius of about 9.0 earth radii, and a mass 95 times the Earth’s mass. Estimate the gravitational field on the surface of Saturn compared to that on the Earth. Show your work.
Answer:
g= GM/r²
G= 6.67 * 10^-11 Nm²/kg² ME= 5.98 * 10^24 kg RE=6.37* 10^7m Ms=95Me Rs=9.0re
g=(6.67x 10^-11 Nm²/kg² ) (95x5.98x10^24 kg)/ (9.0)(6.37x 10^7m)²
I think this equation is right at end don't know how to solve it though please help
