*So, how much weaker is the force of gravity at 500 kilometers above Earth's surface? Calculate how much of a g force the astronauts are actually experiencing. This equation can be modified for any other planet by replacing using the planet's radius and its surface gravity (how many g's).*

this is the problem

The equation they gave me was:

gr=R(squared)/r(squared) X(times) g

I got:

gr=(6378.1km(squared)/6878.1km(squared) X(times) 9.8m/sec/sec)=9.0875939576336488274378098602812m/sec/sec

Did i get it right? I really don't think I did.
