Astronomy Motion and Gravity Lab

I’m studying for my Physics class and need an explanation.

The purpose of this activity is to learn how the radius and mass of a planet affect the gravitational pull it

exerts on another mass and to demonstrate the difference between mass and weight.

Use the tool from Lesson 2 (shown in Figure 6-4) to determine both the person’s largest and smallest possible weights. Record your results in the table below.

Which extremes of the radius and mass of the planet were needed to get the largest possible weight for the person?

Which extremes of the radius and mass of the planet were needed to get the smallest possible weight for the person?
