What is the force exerted on falling apple on Jupiter?


The average weight of an apple is 0.1 kg. The gravitational constant, which on Earth is 9.8 ms^-2, or the average acceleration that a falling object undergoes, on Jupiter is 24.8 ms^-2. As a result, the force of exerted on a falling apple on Jupiter, which is only that of gravity, would be about two and a half times that of Earth, or about 2.48 Newtons.
