Objects on the moon's surface have an acceleration due to gravity one-sixth that on the earth's. What would the 40 kg boy weigh on the moon? (Round answer to nearest tenth.)

Weight M g/6, where
M = mass
g = acceleration of gravity ON EARTH

The answer will be in Newtons.

A Newton is about 0.22 pounds
