# An object has a weight of 5.10 Newtons (N) at sea level, where the acceleration due to gravity is 9.81 m/s2. What is the acceleration due to gravity on the object of it is placed in a space ship 1,000 km above sea level, where gravity exerts a force of 3.81 N on the object. F(newtons)=m(kg) x a(m/s2) Please show work.

Well, you could get the mass as $m=\frac{G_0}{g_0}$ ad then $g_1=\frac{G_1}{m}$, where $G_0$ is the sea level weight, $g_0$ the sea level accel., $g_1$ the accel. above while $G_1$ the weight above.
