A man weighs 1220 N on Earth. What would he weigh on Jupiter, where the free-fall acceleration is 25.9 m/s2? The acceleration of gravity is 9.8 m/s2 .
Answer in units of N.

  • Physics - ,

    The weight on any planet is mg, where g is the appropriate acceleration due to gravity.
    On earth, it is mg = 1220N, therefore
    m = 1220/g
    On Jupiter,
    mg' = 1220/g*g'
    = 1220*(25.9/9.8) N
    = ? N
