Question and answer
If Earth had only half as much mass as it currently does, how would this affect the force of gravity between the moon and Earth? A. The force of gravity would remain the same. B. The force of
gravity would be half what it currently is. C. The force of gravity would be twice what it currently is. D. The force of gravity would be one quarter of what it currently is.
If Earth had only half as much mass as it currently does, the force of gravity between the moon and Earth would be half what it currently is.

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)
