Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Lindsay on Sunday, December 16, 2007 at 12:26pm.

Suppose that the ratio of the Moon's mass to the Earth's mass is given by 1.200E-2 and that the ratio of the Moon's radius to the Earth's radius is given by 2.700E-1. Calculate the ratio of an astronaut's Moon-weight to Earth-weight.

Now it seems like this problem really shouldn't be too difficult. However, I'm not sure of how to solve it given ratios instead of the actual masses and radius's.
