Problem 80

Jupiter is about 320 times as massive as the Earth. Thus, it has been claimed that a person would be crushed by the force of gravity on a planet the size of Jupiter since people cant survive more than a few gs. Calculate the number of gs a person would experience at the equator of such a planet. Use the following data for Jupiter: mass = 9 X 1027kg, equatorial radius = 7.1 X 104km. rotation period = 9 hr 55 min. Take the centripetal acceleration into account.
