Question details
019 (part 1 of 2) 10.0 points On the way to the moon, the Apollo astro- nauts reach a point where the Moons gravi tational pull is stronger than that of Earths. Find the distance of this point from the center of the Earth. The masses of the Earth and the Moon are 5.98 × 1024 kg and 7.36 x 1022 kg, respectively, and the distance from the Earth to the Moon is 3.84 × 100 m Answer in units of m. 020 (part 2 of 2) 10.0 points What would the acceleration of the astro- naut be due to the Earths gravity at this point if the moon was not there The value of the universal gravitational constant is 6.672 × 10 11 N·1112/kg, Answer in units of m/s
