Can anyone help me with this question?

[/B]

"Describe how the weight of an object changes as it moves from the surface of the Earth to the surface of the moon. At what point between them is the resultant gravitational force on an object zero? Where is its acceleration zero?"

(distance between Earth and moon = 3.8e8 m

Mass of Earth = 81 x mass of moon

Mass of Earth = 6e24 kg

Radius of Earth = 6.4e6 m

Gravity on Earth's surface = 9.8 m/s

Universal gravitational constant = 6.7e-11 N m^2 kg^-2)

Thanks in advance!
