Jupiter's moon, Io ejecting material at 1000 kg/s--just want to know if i did this right?
the mass of Io = 8.9319 * 10^22 kg
10% of this mass = 8.9319 * 10^21 kg
time until 10% lost--> mass/rate---> 8.1319*10^21kg/ 1000 (kg/s)
8.319 * 10^18 s is what I get from doing this calculation
Does this seem right? This would be much longer than the time that has elapsed from the beginning of the solar system til today. Am I forgetting something??
