Problem 35PE

(a) What is the acceleration due to gravity on the surface of the Moon?

(b) On the surface of Mars? The mass of Mars is 6.418×1023 kg and its radius is 3.38×106 m.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution to 35PE

Step 1 of 3</p>

We are asked to find the acceleration due to gravity on the surface of the moon  and on the surface of mars.

 We know that the equation of acceleration due to gravity is given by,

is the acceleration due to gravity

 is the universal gravitational constant.

is the planet

 is the distance

Required data:

Mass of moon:

Radius of moon

Universal gravitational constant

Step 2 of 3</p>Acceleration due to gravity on moon’s surface

 is the acceleration due to gravity at moon’s surface

 is the radius of moon

 is the mass of the moon.

Thus acceleration due to gravity on moon’s surface is

Step 3 of 3
