At some moment, two giant planets Jupiter and Saturn of the solar system are in the same line as seen from the earth. Find the total gravitational force due to them on a person of mass 50 kg on the earth. Could the force due to the planets be important?
Mass of the Jupiter = 2 ×
Mass of the Saturn = 6 ×
The distance of Jupiter from the earth = 6.3 ×
The distance of Saturn from the earth = 1.28 ×
