Many people know that the weight of an object varies on different planets, but did you know that the weight of an object on earth also varies according to the elevation of the object? In particular, the weight of an object follows this equation: 2 - = Cr w , Where w is weight in pounds r is the distance in miles from the center of the earth C is a constant with units 2 lb*mi 1. Solve the equation 2 - = Cr w for r; use rules for exponents, roots, and square roots. ( 29 2 2 C w Cr r - = = Page 1 of 5 rev c Paul Hunter
