How much work is done by the moon's gravitational field as a 1000kg meteor comes from outer space and impacts the moon's surface?
all I have to do is:
[tex]U=-\frac{Gm_1m_2}{r}[/tex]
where [tex]_{m_1}[/tex] is the mass of the moon, [tex]_{m_2}[/tex] is the mass of the meteor, and [tex]_{r}[/tex] is the radius of the moon. is that correct?
