gravity on the surface of the moon is only 1/6 as strong as gravity on earth. what is the weight of a 37 kg object on the earth? The acceleration of gravity is 10m/s

Ever heard of the equation W = M g?

For the moon, use a g value 1/6 that of the Earth.

Your weights should be in Newtons.

The acceleration of gravity on Earth is not 10 m/s. It is 9.8 m/s^2. Use 10 m/s^2 if they insist.

You have to get the dimensions right.
