QUESTION 1
(P01.C01.C2, C4)
a)

By providing a related equation, explain the law of gravitation.


(5 marks)

b)

Calculate the weight of a 85 kg person standing on the surface of the earth using
Newton's law of universal gravitation. Then repeat the calculation by using equation
W = mg where:
Constant of gravitation = 6.673 x (1011) m3/(kg.s2)
Mass of Earth
= 5.976 x (1024) kg
Radius of the earth
= 6371 x (103) m
