assume you have a mass of 100 kg on earth. on the moon, where the gravitation of the moon is 1/6 gravitation of the earth, what is your mass on the moon and what is your weight on the moon

  • PHYSICS -

    Mass is the same on the moon. Weight, however, on the moon is 1/6 of the weight on Earth.

  • PHYSICS -

    Weight on earth= mg
    = 100 kg x 9.8 m/s²
    = 980 N

    Weight on moon = 1/6 x mg
    = 1/6 x 980 N
    = 163.33 N

    However mass is same anywhere in the universe.
