Jupiter is the most massive planet in the solar system. Earth has much less mass than Jupiter, and Mercury has much less mass than Earth. Suppose a spaceship was orbiting at a distance of 20,000 km above the surface of Jupiter. How far away from Mercury would the spaceship have to orbit to experience the same gravitational force? A. Exactly 20,000 km away. B. Less than 20,000 km away. C. More than 20,000 km away. D. Halfway between Mercury and Jupiter.
Weegy: B. Less than 20,000 km. [ The gravitational force is directly proportional to the mass of the bodies (M and m) and is inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them (r) It means that the force is stronger when the objects are closer and heavy.......And the force is smaller when they are farther and lighter. ] (More)
