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


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


    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.
