Alright, well. How do I get mass out of pounds? I need to figure out what the force is in newtons on someone when they fall 1 meter. The person weighs 95 pounds. Do I need to convert it to kilograms then divide that by the gravitational constant of 9.81 m/s? or can I just do 95/9.81? 1/1 = 1m/s^2 0 ~ 1 / 1s = 1m/s^2 9.7 x 1 = 9.7 F = 9.7 First I did speed, which was 1/1 (1 meter for 1 second) = 1m/s^2 Then I did acceleration, and then M x A = 9.7 Is it correct? NOTE: This is not homework.
