Saturn’s moon Rhea has a radius of m and a measured gravitational field of 0.264 m/s2. What is its mass in kilograms? The universal gravitational constant has a value of m3⋅kg−1⋅s−2.
In the formula , what does represent?
Jupiter has a mass approximately 300 times greater than Earth’s and a radius about 11 times greater. How will the gravitational acceleration at the surface of Jupiter compare to that at the surface of Earth?
