A typical discussion of the Law of Universal Gravitation is centered around Earth-based events or the Earth/Moon system. This is reasonable since we can observe these events easily, make hypotheses and build experiments to test them. Since it is the Law of Universal Gravitation, it should apply to other systems as well. Using volume and density the mass of IO is calculated and applied to find the acceleration of gravity on IO.
