    Can anybody solve this problem?

    How high above the surface of the earth should a rocket be
    in order to have 1/100 of its normal weight? Express your answer
    in units of earth radii.

    (Please include work)

    This isn't that kind of a forum. You have to try and solve the problem first and then we give help. That's all. No one is supposed to solve problems for you. Give it a try. It's not that hard. What formula might you want to use?
