Physics: How much do you way on another planet
posted by HELP ME!! on .
A person weighs 900 N on Earth. What would he weigh on another planet, where the free-fall acceleration is 26.4 m/s2? Answer in units of N.
on Earth, gravitational field g=9.8N/kg
Here, on this planet it is g=26.4N/kg
Weight=mass*g= 900/9.8 * 26.2 N
thank you bob, you have been very helpful! :)
