Final Answer

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

a) U = m g' (R + h) – m g R = m g R²/(R+h) – m g R 

U = m g R (R/(R+h) – 1) = - m g R h/(R+h) 

U = -94*9.8*6371000*1.96*10^6/(6371000 + 1.96*10^6) 

U= -1380767230 J

U= -1380.767*10^6 J

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
