Homework Help: Newton's law of gravitation

  1. Mar 29, 2010 #1
    When a falling meteor is at a distance above the earth’s surface of 3.61 times the earth's radius, what is the acceleration of the earth's gravity in m/s2? (Use the average radius of the earth in your calculations)

    can somebody walk me through this one? thanks
