The acceleration due to gravity on the moon is about one-sixth its value on earth. If a baseball reaches a height of 51 m when thrown upward by someone on the earth, what height would it reach when thrown in the same way on the surface of the moon? Answer in units of m


would the answer be 51m * 6 = 306m


since the height on earth is 51 meters and the gravity on the moon is 1/6 the amount of the earth

  • Physics & Gravity -

    yes, correct.

  • Physics & Gravity -

    yea, 306 is correct!
