1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data What is the apparent weight of a 730-N astronaut when her spaceship has an acceleration of magnitude 2.0g in the following two situations. a) just above the surface of Earth, acceleration straight up; b) far from any stars of planets? 2. Relevant equations Fnet=N-mg=ma 3. The attempt at a solution W'=N=mg+ma=m(g+a) =m(g + 2g) m=730/g W'=730*3=2190N The answer in the book is 2200N, not sure if they just rounded and I'm not sure how to answer b.
