Pluto has a mass of 1.30  1022 kg and a radius of 1.18  106 m. (a) What is the acceleration due to gravity on Pluto?(b) How much would a 4.55-kg person weigh on this planet?

 mass of the planet= 1.30× 10^22

radius of the planet= 1.18× 10^6

Gravitational Constant G = 6.67 × 10-11 N-m2/kg2

acceleration due to gravity= GM/r^2

=(6.67 × 10-11× 1.30× 10^22)/ (1.1.8× 10^6)^2

(8.671× 10^22×10^-11)/(1.18× 10^6)^2

g= 0.6227m/s2

weight W=mg

W= 4.55×o.6227

W= 2.833
