## Homework Statement

Image attached. This figure shows the force on a 0.1-kilogram mass at various distances from Earth. Notice that the force decreases as the square of the distance. Now, consider satellites A and B, both circling Earth. If A has ten times the mass of B but B is 1/10 of the distance to the center of Earth as is A, what is the gravitational force on A relative to that of B due to Earth?

1/100 times as much

100 times as much

1/10 the amount

10 times as much

the two are equal
