  1. Naturally, the planet with the most mass experiences the strongest force.

    F = GMm/r^2

    If r is constant, then GM/r^2 is a constant k, and

    F = km

    Larger m means larger F (force).

  4. The strength of a gravity pull between two bodies is proportional to their mass and inversely proportional to their distance. Since the distance here is fixed, the only thing that will affect it is the bodies' mass. Since the sun is a fixed mass here, the only thing that will matter now is the mass of the planet

  6. It is D because out of all the planets, it is farthest away. Because it farthest away, it experiences the strongest force. I am in the same school as you, Connections Academy. You should read the lessons and information, and learn it. You will benefit from it. Use your own mind, you are capable.
