1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
If a man weights 900N on the Earth, what would he weigh on Jupiter, where the freefall acceleration is 25.9 m/2? 2. Relevant equations Fg=mg m=Fg/g 3. The attempt at a solution Mass on earth is m=900n/9.8m/s = 91.8kg with the weight on Jupiter is Fg=(91.8kg)(25.9m/s2)=2.38x10 third power Is this this easy? Thanks, Kevin 1.
