Consider the International Space Station orbiting Earth. Earth's gravitational field exerts a gravitational force on the space station.
What two non-negligible factors contribute to the gravitational field at the location of the space station?
Earth's mass; Space station's mass
Earth's radius plus space station's altitude; Space station's mass
Earth's radius plus space station's altitude; Earth's mass
Space station's radius; Space station's mass
