Problem 32P

A hypothetical planet has a mass 1.66 times that of Earth, but the same radius. What is g near its surface?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 32P

Step 1 of 4</p>

Here we have to calculate the acceleration due to gravity on the surface of a hypothetical planet which has a mass 1.66 times the Earth’s mass, but having same radius as Earth.

Let and  are the mass and radius of the Earth respectively. So the radius of the hypothetical planet will be  and the mass of the planet will be

Step 2 of 4</p>

The acceleration due to gravity on the surface of any planet is given by,

                                ……...1

Where  is the acceleration due to gravity on the surface of any planet,  is universal gravitational constant, and  are the mass and radius of the planet respectively.

Step 3 of 4
