an object’s weight on a planet is directly proportional to the mass of that planet and inversely proportional to the square of the radius of the planet. jupiter is 318 times as massive as Earth and has a radius 11 times as large as that of Earth. if Gordon weighs 100 pounds on Earth, how many pounds would he weigh on jupiter?
