The acceleration due to gravity at the north pole of Jupiteris 25 ms-2. Jupiter has a mass 1.9 x 1027 kg and radius7.1 x 107 m. (a) What is the gravitational force on a 5 kg object placed atthe north pole of Jupiter?

(c) Calculate a value for G.

The temperature near the surface of the earth is 291 K. Anargon atom (atomic mass = 39.948 u) has a kinetic energy equalto the average translational energy and is moving straight up. Ifthe atom does not collide with any other atoms or molecules,how high up would it go before coming to rest? Assume that the acceleration due to gravity is constant throughout the ascent.h =.
