Question #17802

what is the weight of a 236 kg object on the surface of venus if the radius of venus is 6,000 km and the mass of venus is a 4.87x10^24 kg?

Expert's answer

weight is equal to gravity force, which is

F=G*m1*m2/r^2

F=6.67*10^{-11}*236*4.87*10^{24}/(6000000^2)=212.9 kg

F=G*m1*m2/r^2

F=6.67*10^{-11}*236*4.87*10^{24}/(6000000^2)=212.9 kg
