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
answer in units of N
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.
