Homework Help: PHYSICS PLEASEEE

Posted by henry on Thursday, November 6, 2008 at 11:39pm.

The distinction between mass and weight was discovered after Jean Richer transported pendulum clocks from Paris to French Guiana in 1671. He found that they ran slower there quite systematically. The effect was reversed when the clocks returned to Paris. Suppose you weigh 199 pounds in Paris. How much weight would you personally lose in traveling from Paris, where g = 9.8095 m/s2, to Cayenne, where g = 9.7808 m/s2
