A 6.0-kg object undergoes an acceleration of 2.6 m/s2.
(a) What is the magnitude of the resultant force acting on it?
N

(b) If this same force is applied to a 12.0-kg object, what acceleration is produced?
m/s2

A bag of sugar weighs 2.00 lb on Earth. What would it weigh in newtons on the Moon, where the free-fall acceleration is one-sixth that on Earth?
N

Repeat for Jupiter, where g is 2.64 times that on Earth.
N

Find the mass of the bag of sugar in kilograms at each of the three locations.
Earth kg
Moon kg
Jupiter kg
