A 784 Newton astronaunt travels to Neptune's largest moon, Triton, with a simple bathroom scale. While standing on the surface of the moon, he finds that he now weighs only 62 Newtons. What is g, acceleration due to gravity, on Triton?

• Physics -

g = Weight/Mass

It will be higher than the value on Earth.
