Sort by:

$$\frac{GMm}{r^{2}}$$(Newton's equation)

$$M_{sun}=1.8981 \times 10^{30}$$

$$M_{moon}=~7.3 \times 10^{23}$$

$$M_{jupiter}=1.89 \times 10^{27}$$

$$r_{sun-earth}=149.6 \times 10^{11}$$

$$r_{moon-earth}=384400$$

$$r_{jupiter-earth}=~666.9 \times 10^{11}$$

Calculate all these and you will find why. · 3 years ago
