    can someone please check the Net force between the person (65kg) and the earth with a mass of 5.98X10^24Kg and radius of 6.38X10^6m. And how do i find the net force between them the second way...i'm not getting the right answer!!!

    i was suppose to get the net force between the earth and the person....i got it the first way by applying the conventional formula.... F = G(m1)(m2)/d^2 and got 635N

    and the other way i got the net force was by multiplying the mass off the person with the gravitational force of wearth...9.80N and i got 637N

    Ok so the way I would do it is as follows: Since the force is the same (the force of gravity I can cheat and use the ratio of the two.... On Earth F=weight=mg=(65kg)g On Jupiter F'=jupiter weight=mj = (65kg)j Now divide the equations which give you F/F' = g/j

    Ahhh no your'e part be isnt TOTALLY correct. If you put jupter's mass in a ball with the radius the size of the galaxy it's gravitational acceleration on the surface wouldn't be close to what it is on earth's surface.... what matters is that its Mass/Radius^2 which is honestly why I chose the approach I did...

    Oh wait I read the question a bit backwards but my reasoning is still sound... The smaller planet here (earth) definitely DOES NOT have more mass than jupiter... google it ~10^24kg for earth and ~10^27 for jupiter

    \[j=g \frac{F_{G_{Jupiter}}}{F_{G_{Earth}}}=g\frac{\frac{GmM_{Jup}}{R_{Jup}^2}}{\frac{GmM_{Earth}}{R_{Earth}^2}} = g \frac{\frac{M_{Jup}}{R_{Jup}^2}}{\frac{M_{Earth}}{R_{Earth}^2}}= g \frac{M_{Jup}R_{Earth}^2}{{R_{Jup}^2M_{Earth}}} \]

    because if so... all you need to do is take that equation plug in your knowns and evaluate it.... then of course you have found the acceleration on the surface of jupiter (I called it j)... then multiply by the mass to find the weight on the "surface" of jupiter

    that's what i did honey.... the second way to get the net force between the person and the earth is by simply multiplying the gravitational force of gravity of earth(9.8m/sec^2) times the mass of the person...65kg...and i get the same answer as in the initial way i got the answer!!!

    Ummm yes part a) has you find the earth weight which is just mg but you did an F_grav calculation with earth's mass and radius which weren't givens... look if your'e teacher is ok with that I am I just wasn't sure because sometimes you have to stick to the knowns in the problem.

    So your answer looks correct using the numbers you used int he problem 24.585 which you should express as 24.6 since the largest number of sig figs used in the givens is 3

    btw were you referring to art B, because the mass of the earth and the radius were given in the previouse page o i used those to solve for the net force....for part A i on'y used what was given to me...

    Given the level of accuracy required... it probably doesn't make any difference, but in the real world a scientific calculation should be first expressed as simply as possible with as few variables as possible and then evaluated. Since each term bring with it uncertainties which stack up (though some known values can have absurdly high accuracy like charge/mass ratio of electron)

    So if you evaluate it long hand by using all those terms... and then evaluate it using just g technically they are the same but I dont know.... No that is incorrect the units of g are acceleration not force ( m/s/s)

    :D your welcome... remember as you progress in your studies you will find it harder and harder for people to be able to help you and then maybe, eventually you will be out there on your own solving problems that don't have known answer. This is a really good time to start practicing your judgement and reasoning skills on problems that are easy, and when you do make an error to learn from it by finding out where you made the error and always being cautious of it down the road.
