At closest approach, the 722 kg Voyager 2 probe flew by Neptune at an altitude of 29,240 km. - watch your units!!! A) What was the probe's weight at that moment if Neptune has a radius of 24,900 km and a mass of 9.99 x 10²5 kg? B) Use the information from part A to calculate the acceleration due to gravity at that altitude above Neptune.
