Physics: How much do you way on another planet

posted by .

A person weighs 900 N on Earth. What would he weigh on another planet, where the free-fall acceleration is 26.4 m/s2? Answer in units of N.

  • Physics: How much do you way on another planet -

    Weight=GravitationalField*mass

    on Earth, gravitational field g=9.8N/kg
    Here, on this planet it is g=26.4N/kg

    Weight=mass*g= 900/9.8 * 26.2 N
