Gravity on the moon is only 1/6 as strong as gravity on earth. What is the weight of a 20 kg object on the moon and on earth?
I have to find it in Newtons on earth and on the moon.



WeightinNewtons= mass* gravity field

on earth, the gravity field is 9.8N/kg, and on the moon, it is one sixth that.


weightinnewtons= mass* gravity field

earth-gravity field is 9.8N/kg, on the moon it's one sixth of 9.8N/kg.
