Step 1

1 of 10Given details are:

$\begin{aligned} \text{Radius of Earth}&=R_{E}\\ \text{Radius of the planet $(R)$}&=10\cdot R_{E} \end{aligned}$

We have to calculate our weight on this planet compared with what we weigh on Earth. Newton's law of gravitational force can be used here for calculation.

$\begin{aligned} F&=\dfrac{G\cdot M\cdot m}{R^2} \end{aligned}$
