Hi there, everybody, ivgot a question here,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

In a distant solar system, a planet (mass 4.13x1028 kg) is orbiting the sun (mass 7.67x1030 kg) with an orbit radius of 2.72x1011 m.

Calculate the magnitude of the net gravitational field strength midway between the planet and the sun, in N kg -1

so the Sun's gravitational field, is given by g = (G*Msun)/r^2sun

i get an aswer 1.48e-4 which is not correct of course, why not?.

please help, thnaks in advance.
