Part A What is the gravitational force on the satellite? Take the gravitational constant to be = 6.67 × 10 11 , the mass of the earth to be = 5.97 × 10 24 , and the radius of the Earth to be = 6.38 × 10 6 . Hint A.1 How to approach the problem Hint not displayed Hint A.2 Law of gravitation Hint not displayed Part A.3 Calculate the distance between the centers of mass Part not displayed Express your answer in newtons. ANSWER: = 1.75 × 10 4 Part B What fraction is this of the satellite's weight at the surface of the earth? Take the free-fall acceleration at the surface of the earth to be
