# Calculate the acc

Acceleration due to gravity, g = G * M/R2

Mass, M = 7.4 * 1022 kg

Radius, R = 1.74 * 106m

Gravitational constant, G = 6.67 * 10-11 Nm2 kg-2

g = 6.67 * 10-11 * 7.4 * 1022/ (1.74 * 106)2

g = = 1.637 m/s2

As the value of g = 1.637 m/s2, which is one-sixth the value of g on earth, the satellite could be moon.
