The mass of Venus is 4.87x10 to power 24 Kg. The radius of Venus is 6.05x10 to power 6 M. If a boy was standing on the surface of Venus and drops a baseball, what's the acceleration of the baseball?
The formula for calculating gravity is g = Gm/r^2 where G is a constant equal to 6.67 X 10^-11 N-m^2/kg^2
m = mass of the planet = 4870000000000000000000000kg
r = radius = 6050000m
Just plug in the values and solve for g
g = 487 X 10^22kg(6.67 X 10^-11)/6050000m = 53690743.8
