1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data What is the weight of a 200 kg satellite 12.8 * 10^6 m above the surface of the Earth. 2. Relevant equations F = mg 3. The attempt at a solution F=200 (9.81) F = 1962 N I thought this was a basic weight problem, but I was confused on whether the height above the Earth affects the weight.
