Compute your mass in kilograms (1 pound has a mass of 0.45 kg on Earth) and then your weight in Newtonâ€™s for the earth, moon, and several planets. Where are you heaviest?

• physics -

Mass = 0.45kg/Lb * 160Lbs. = 72 kg.

Wt. = m*g = 72kg * 9.8N./kg = 705.6 N.
on Earth.

Wt. = 705.6N/6 = 117.6 N. on the moon.
