## Homework Statement

What is the apparent weight of a 730-N astronaut when her spaceship has an acceleration of magnitude 2.0g in the following two situations. a) just above the surface of Earth, acceleration straight up; b) far from any stars of planets?

## Homework Equations

Fnet=N-mg=ma

## The Attempt at a Solution

W'=N=mg+ma=m(g+a)

=m(g + 2g)

m=730/g

W'=730*3=2190N

The answer in the book is 2200N, not sure if they just rounded and I'm not sure how to answer b.
