the value of acceleration due to gravity (g) on a point 10000 kilometers above sea level is about 1.49 meters/seconds how much will an object which weight 98 Newtons on the surface of earth weigh on this point the value of acceleration due to gravity on earth is 9.8 meters/second?

    from hyperphysics |dw:1443465972135:dw| weight is defined as the mass of an object times the "local" value of g

    so for "an object which weighs 98 Newtons on the surface of earth", you can get the object's mass using the local value of g at the earth's surface then you can calculate its weight at 10000 kilometers above sea level because you know that "g" there is about 1.49 meters/seconds
