Homework Help: Gravitational Force and Weight

  1. Sep 21, 2008 #1
    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
