Magnitude and Direction, Gravitational force Q
I don't know if this is a very easy question or if I am totally missing something but the question is:
What is the magnitude and direction of the gravitational force that acts on a women who weighs 500 N at the surface of the earth?
From reading this, I am thinking that the magnitude would be 500 N and the direction would be towards the Earth. Is this correct? Heh, probably this is a very easy question but I just wanted to check if I am correct or totally wrong and if i am wrong, would someone be able to hint at the right direction so I can look it up? I don't quite understand all the concepts. Thank you in advanced.
