Although Jupiter is more than 300 times as massive as Earth, a body would barely weigh three times as much as on the surface of Jupiter as it would on the surface of the earth and not 300 times. Explain why.

    The radius of Jupiter is very large, so the gravitational force becomes lesser than Earth because the attraction is caused by the center.
