Suppose the earth is a perfect sphere with R = 6370 KM. If a person weighs exactly 600 N at the north pole, how much will the person weigh at the equator.? (Hint: The upward push of hte scale on the person is what the scale will read and is what we aer calling the weight in this case)(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

ANS: 579.9 N

this is on a angular motin in a plane work sheet, i got all the ones above but here im blanked

i cant use energy equations, nor mv2/r, or can i? i dont know how ot attempt this.

or is it f = g m1 m2 / r2?

i just need a kickstart
