Question

# The mass of Jupiter is 1027 kg. It orbits at a distance from the Sun of about 5 AU, which is about 1012 m in SI

units. Approximately, what is the ratio of the gravitational force that Jupiter exerts on your body to the gravitational force that a fellow student in your class exerts on your body?

A. Jupiter exerts a force that is larger by 1027.

B. Jupiter exerts a force that is larger by a factor of 1012.

C. Jupiter exerts a force that is between roughly 1 and 10 times as large.

D. Jupiter exerts a force that is smaller by 1027.

E. Jupiter exerts a force that is smaller by a factor of 1012.
