Question

Two planet have radii in the ratio $$1:2$$ and densities in the ratio $$1:3$$. The value of the ratio between acceleration due to gravity on the first planet to that of the second planet is:


A
6
loader
B
3
loader
C
1/4
loader
D
1/6
loader

Solution

The correct option is D $$1/6$$
$$g=\dfrac{GM_p}{r^2}$$

$$M_p=Density\times Volume=Density\times\dfrac{4\pi r^3}{3}$$
$$g=\dfrac{G\times density\times 4\pi r^3}{3r^2}$$

Thus g$$\propto r$$ and g$$\propto Density$$

So,$$\dfrac{g_1}{g_2}=\dfrac{1\times 1}{2\times 3}=\dfrac{1}{6}$$
