The gravitational acceleration at the International Space Station’s altitude is about 93% of its surface value.

What’s the weight of a 72 kg astronaut at this altitude?

2. Relevant equations

w=mg

where w is weight

m is the mass

g is the gravity's acceleration

3. The attempt at a solution

mass is given as 72kg

I know the station is a satellite in space. but how do i go about finding acceleration? any tips would be helpful.
