Answer to Question #942 in Mechanics | Relativity for Claire
Assume the units for the two quantities are
kg and N.
A 1.62 book in space has a weight of 7.36.
What is the value of gravitational field at
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/sec2
