what is the weight of a 100kg man on the moon with a gravitaional acceleration of 1.6m/s(squared)?

• physics -

is it 225lbs?

• physics -

it is m gmoon = 100 * 1.6
which is 160 N

• physics -

It does not have anything to do with units conversion, although yes, 100 kg roughly equals 225 lb.

As in the previous question,
Weight = mg
g on the moon is 1.6 m/s²
so the weight is 100 kg*1.6 m/s²=160 N.
Note: N stands for newton and is a unit of force required to cause an acceleration of 1 m/s² on a mass of 1 kg.

Boi where?
