Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. 001 10.0 points Tom has a mass of 72 . 9 kg and Sally has a mass of 41 . 8 kg. Tom and Sally are standing 39 . 4 m apart on a massless dance floor. Sally looks up and she sees Tom. She feels an attraction. If the attraction is gravitation, find its mag- nitude. Assume both can be replaced by spherical masses and that the gravitational constant is 6 . 67259 10 11 N m 2 / kg 2 . Correct answer: 1 . 3098 10 10 N. Explanation: Let : m T = 72 . 9 kg , m S = 41 . 8 kg , d = 39 . 4 m , and G = 6 . 67259 10 11 N m 2 / kg 2 . By Newtons universal law of gravitation, F = G m T m S d 2 = (6 . 67259 10 11 N m 2 / kg 2 ) (72 . 9 kg) (41 . 8 kg) (39 . 4 m) 2 = 1 . 3098 10 10 N . 002 10.0 points How high does a rocket have to go above the Earths surface so that its weight is reduced to 56 . 5 % of its weight at the Earths sur- face? The radius of the Earth is 6380 km and the universal gravitational constant is 6 . 67 10 11 N m 2 / kg 2 ....
