Consider a thin rod of mass M and length L. Suppose M is equal to the mass of the Earth and L is equal to the radius of the Earth.

Consider a thin rod of mass M and length L. Suppose M is equal to the mass of the Earth and L is equal to the radius of the Earth. Determine the acceleration due to gravity (of the rod) at a distance r = 0.88 L from the center of the rod. Data_M= 5.974×10^24 kg; L = 6.378×10^6m
