(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Calculate the black hole mass limit such that the change in the gravitational acceleration at a distance 50R_{s}over a small interval of 2m doesn't exceed 10m/s^{2}. Use Newton's Theory of Gravity in the calculation.

2. Relevant equations

Schwarszchild Radius:

R_{s}= 2GM / c^{2}

Newton's Theory of Gravity:

F = GMm / r^{2}

3. The attempt at a solution

Totally lost. I'm an American study abroad student in New Zealand and am completely lost with these assignments. Don't know where to go for help.
