A man has a mass of 70 kg.

A) What would his weight be on Jupiter which as an acceleration of gravity of 25m/s^2?

B) What would the mass of a person have to be in order for him to weigh that amount on earth?

I will be happy to critique your work.

So far for:

A) w=mg
=(70 kg)(25m/s^2)
= 1750 N
B) m=wg
=(1750 N)(9.8 m/s^2)
=1666
(I don't know what the units would be for this or if it even right) If you can help, it would be greatly appreciated!
