the acceleration acting on a falling object due to gravity varies inversely with the square of the object's distance from the center of Earth. At the surface of Earth, where x = 1 Earth Radius, the acceleration is y = 9.8 m/sec(squared)(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

a.) Use the multiply-multiply pattern of power functions to find the acceleration at 3 and 9 Earth radii from the center
