Saturn has a radius of about 9.0 earth radii, and a mass 95 times the Earth’s mass. Estimate the gravitational field on the surface of Saturn compared to that on the Earth. (How would I solve this?)

    You would solve this by looking up, how gravity works in your notes. More specificly, you want to look up Newton's law of gravitation.

    g = GM / r^2 Would I use this formula?

    Ahm - that depends on what those symbols are going to "be" ... but yeah - that does look pretty good. How did you come up with it?
