What is the weight of a 12 kg mass on the moon if the gravitational acceleration (g) was only .8 m/s/s?

    weight= m*gravitationalacceleration

    The actual value of g on the Moon is 1.6 m/s/s, not 0.8.

    The weight formula is
    W = M g,
    but I cannot recommend using an incorrect value for g.
