A satellite orbits a planet. The gravitational field strength at the radius of the orbit is 12 N/kg. What will the gravitational field strength at the position of the satellite be if(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

- The planet's density is doubled?

- The satellite's mass is doubled?

I just don't understand their relationship. Any help is appreciated =)
