( Astronomical Unit ) which is 1 . 49619 × 10 11 m 003 10.0points A certain weighing scale calculates the mass of an object by first measuring the normal force exerted by the object on the scale and then dividing it by the standard value of g = 9 . 8 m / s 2 . For a given object, the scale reads 35 kg on the surface of the earth at the North Pole, which is at a distance 6360 km from the center of the earth. Calculate the reading on the scale for the same object at the equator, which is at a distance 6378 km from the center of the earth.
