Unformatted text preview: g E , we have g E g M = M E M M w R M R E W 2 Substituting the given values for planetary mass and radius, we find g E g M = 5 . 97 Â· 10 24 kg 6 . 42 Â· 10 23 kg w 3 . 397 Â· 10 3 km 6 . 372 Â· 10 3 km W 2 = 2 . 6429 Therefore, the gravitational acceleration on Mars is g M = 9 . 807 m/sec 2 2 . 6429 = 3 . 71 m sec 2 Thus, denoting Bondâ€™s mass by m , his weight on Mars would be W 007 = mg M = (90 kg ) D 3 . 71 m/sec 2 i = 333 . 9 N â‰ˆ 1 3 kN...
