kg and N.

A 1.62 book in space has a weight of 7.36.

What is the value of gravitational field at

that location?

Expert's answer

The book has the mass of 1.62 [kg] and the weight of 7.36 [N].

The value of gravitational field would be

a = 7.36 / 1.62 = 4.54 m/sec

The value of gravitational field would be

a = 7.36 / 1.62 = 4.54 m/sec
