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 free-fall 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
