A spring scale being used to measure the weight of an object reads 17.1 N when it is used on earth. The spring stretches 4.40 cm under the load. The same object is weighed on the moon, where gravitational acceleration is
1 /6 g.
Find the reading of the spring scale on the moon.
Find the period for vertical oscillations of the spring on the moon.
This question has been really bugging me! Can someone please provide the work and answer so I can work backwards to learn this!? THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR TIME !!!
Wt = (1/6) *17.1 = 2,85 N.
