## Main Question or Discussion Point

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.
