Posted by Jimmy on Friday, September 9, 2011 at 8:06pm.

The acceleration due to gravity on the moon is about one-sixth its value on earth. If a baseball reaches a height of 51 m when thrown upward by someone on the earth, what height would it reach when thrown in the same way on the surface of the moon? Answer in units of m

would the answer be 51m * 6 = 306m

since the height on earth is 51 meters and the gravity on the moon is 1/6 the amount of the earth
