I don`t understand the solution for the following question: A satellite is in orbit around the earth. Consider the following quantities: 1. distance from the center of the earth 2. mass of the earth 3. mass of the satellite The gravitational acceleration g depends on which of the above? The solution is 1 and 2. Newton's law of universal gravitation states that every mass in the universe attracts every other mass in the universe. the equation is F= Gm1m2/r² where m1 is the earth and m2 should be the satellite. thank you.
