97. REASONING According to Equation 4.4, the weights of an object of mass m on the surfaces of planet A (mass = M A , radius = R ) and planet B (mass = M B , radius = R ) are AB 22 and GM m GM m WW RR == The difference between these weights is given in the problem. SOLUTION The difference in weights is () A B 2 –– – GM m GM m Gm
