what is the weight of a 100kg man on the moon with a gravitaional acceleration of 1.6m/s(squared)?

  • physics -

    is it 225lbs?

  • physics -

    it is m gmoon = 100 * 1.6
    which is 160 N

  • physics -

    It does not have anything to do with units conversion, although yes, 100 kg roughly equals 225 lb.

    As in the previous question,
    Weight = mg
    g on the moon is 1.6 m/s²
    so the weight is 100 kg*1.6 m/s²=160 N.
    Note: N stands for newton and is a unit of force required to cause an acceleration of 1 m/s² on a mass of 1 kg.
