  2. The value of surface acceleration, gs, for Earth is 9.81 m/s^2. For planet Z, is is nearly the same, just 1.9% higher.

    gs is proportional to M/R^2, where M is the planet's mass and R is its radius

    [M/R^2]z = 1.019 [M/R^2]earth
    Mz/Mearth = 1.019 [Rz/Rearth]^2

    The radius of the Earth is 6371 km. This equaiton will let you solve for the mass of planet Z divided by that of the earth
