What does a 15 kg mass weigh on Earth? need assistance in setting up problem to get answer in Newtons and in pounds.
Weight in Newtons = M g
=(Mass in kg) x (acceleration of gravity in m/s^2)
The acceleration of gravity on Earth is g = 9.8 m/s^2. Do the multiplication
To convert the answer from Newtons to Lbf (pounds force), use the conversion factor 0.224 N/Lbf
