Find the value of C that makes the equation true. (Sea level is 3,963 miles from the center of the Earth.) The equation: C=wr^2 200*3963^2 C=3141073800 c. Use the value of C you found in the previous question to determine how much the object would weigh in i.Dead Sea, Jordon, Israel (1,388 feet below sea level, the lowest level in the world) 3963-1388/5280=0.2629 3141073800*3962.737=12447249366990.6 feet The formula needed: Cr^-2=w w=3141073800*3962.737^-2=200.0266 Answer by ewatrrr(10682)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! Hi, = 3,141,073,800 Yes! or 3,141,073,800/(3963)^2 ~ 200 w when r = 1,388 = 1630.4189 Note: w will be more as r is less Estimating Answer: ~ 3x10^9/2x10^6 = 1.5x10^3 = 1500 Re: TY Note: 1500 was just an approxiamation, which is something recommended when dealing with large numbers...to get a 'ballpark' fiqure to compare with. 1630.4189 is the Actual weight. Round as directed. rounded to the nearest whole number would be 1630. Yes, the idea is 'weightlessness' is something reserved for being a very... long ways above the earth's surface.
