I have got this word problem and I tried to solve but could not find the exact answer and I need the way to do it because my upcoming test has similar problems to it,,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Saturnn has an equatorial radius of 6.00 * 10^{7}m and a mass of 5.67 * 10^{26}Kg. Calculate the following:

a) the acceleration due to gravity of Saturn.

b) how many times greater is a person's weight on Saturn compared to that on Earth?

2. Relevant equations

F= mg

F_{g}= Gm1m2 / r^{2}

3. The attempt at a solution

I don't know where to start from because I am used to solve similar problems starting with the acceleration due to gravity which is known to be 9.81m/s^{2}, but this only applies for Earth gravity and I don't know how to start solving this problem

Thank you for any help
