If the acceleration due to gravity on the Moon is 1/6 that what is on the Earth, what would a 100 kg man weight on the Moon? If a person tried to simulate this gravity in an elevator, how fast would it have to accelerate and in which direction?

  1. a. m*g/6 = 100kg * (9.8/6)N/kg = 163.3 N. = Wt. on the moon.

  2. Any body which has mass x on the earth will be x/6 on moon.so the man will be 100/6kg=16.3kg.
