On the surface of the moon, where the acceleration due to gravity is about one-sixth that of Earth, a 100-kg astronaut would have a mass of_____ and a weight of _____

A. 100kg, 1000N
B. 16.6kg, 166N
C. 100kg, 166N
D. 600kg, 1000N

• physical science -

C. 100kg, 166N

Mass remains constant but weight would be changed because of the gravity.

The equation for force is
F=ma
F=100*1.66
F=166N
