Ok, please tell me if i am correct, or totally out of it(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

What is the acceleration due to gravity on the surface of

(a) the Moon (R=1.74x10^3km,m= 7.35x10^22kg)

(b) Mars (R=3.40x10^3km,m= 6.42x10^23kg)

i used v= square root of m/R

for a i got 6.4993x 10^9

for b i got 1.3741 X 10^10

is this correct, cause i really am not confident :rofl:
