(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); G Force! (Not the movie :D)

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A rocket is accelerating from between mars and jupiter at 26.95m/s/s. calculate the g force on a 60kg astronaut.

2. Relevant equations

T=ma+mg

3. The attempt at a solution

T = 60x26.95=1617

= 1617/600

= approx 2.7g

i would think that g in this equation would be 0 or would i have to find the difference between the two planets' gravity?
