Question

The world's largest ball of twine was made by one man in Minnesota in the United States. A basketball sitting $55.0 \mathrm{~m}$ (measured from centre to centre) from the ball of twine would experience a gravitational field of $1.74 \times 10^{-10} \mathrm{~N} / \mathrm{kg}$ from the ball of twine. Calculate the ball of twine's mass.

Step 1

1 of 4## $\underline{\text{Given}}$

In this problem, we have a ball of twine that is away from the basketball for:

$r=55.0 \text{ m}$

The ball of twine acts on the basketball with a gravitational field whose strength is:

$g=1.74\cdot 10^{-10}\frac{\text{N}}{\text{kg}}$

We need to determine the mass of the ball of twine:

$m_{t}=?$
