 Question 175299: I have a story problem that consists of 2 parts. I can't even begin to figure out the first part so I definately cannot figure out the second. I was hoping there would be someone to help me out. Here is the problem: The weight of an object follows this equation: w=Cr<-2> (the negative 2 is an exponent) where C is a constant, and the r is the distance that the object is from the center of the earth. 1. Solve the equation w=Cr<-2> for r. 2. Suppose that an object is 100 pounds when it is at sea level. Find the value of C that makes the equation true.
