A body is dropped from a height of 10 meters on Earth and hits the ground with a certain velocity. The body is then taken to the moon, which has a gravitational constant that is 1/6th the value as compared to Earth. It is dropped from the same height, hitting the ground with a certain velocity. What is the ratio of the object's velocity on the moon to that of the earth?
