have you read the formula U = mgh ?
huh !
I'm not sure if can assume that g is constant. OK:\[Work=- \Delta U\]U is potential energy. \[U=-\frac{MmG}{r}\] \[\Delta U=-\frac{MmG}{6353000+9000}-(-\frac{MmG}{6353000})\] http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=-%5Cfrac%7B5.97219%C3%9710%5E24+75+%286.67300+%C3%97+10%5E-11%29%7D%7B6353000%2B9000%7D-%28-%5Cfrac%7B5.97219%C3%9710%5E24+*+75+%286.67300+%C3%97+10%5E-11%29%7D%7B6353000%7D%29 So the work the gravitational field does is -6.65558131072543162062365316101183770926987440628 × 10^6, and the work you do is 6.65558131072543162062365316101183770926987440628 × 10^6 Using just U=mgh W=mg(h(2)-h(1))=75*9.8*(9000)= 6615000 The error is 0.6%, so g is fine being constant.

no it says if not told then assume g is 10 m/s^2
