Homework Help: physics

Posted by kara on Sunday, September 23, 2012 at 3:28pm.

Your friend weighs 145 lb. What is her mass in kilograms if she went to the moon where the acceleration of gravity is 1/6 that on earth?

i know that her weight in newtons is 652.5, and that her mass in kilograms is 65.25, and that her weight in newtons if she went to the moon where the acceleration of gravity is 1/6 that on earth is 108.7 so i was thinking that since one N = 10 kg(right?) it would be 10.87 kg but that is wrong. help?
