Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Thank you, however how did you get 1.9846 I thought you multiply 6 x 1.908 to get 11.448

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I understand the divide the mass of Jupiter by the mass of Earth. (1.908/6) but I get 0.318. I just don't get it. I ams sorry. But thank you very much for trying to explain it to me.
