"Weight of a 60kg man in kgf if the local gravity is 9.6m/s^2"

I got no idea what to do..

I tried 60x 9.6m/s^2

but my teacher said that it was wrong...

I'd really appreciate any help I'll get

and thank you in advance..

Assuming 60kg weight at 9.8 m/s^2 calculate mass m(60/9.8=6.122)). This will give mass.Now multiply mass by 9.6 to get kgf or weight for that place(6.122*9.6=58.775). Use results in significant figures if needed.

That gives you the weight in newtons. To convert from newtons to kgf, use: 1 kgf = 9.80665 N"Weight of a 60kg man in kgf if the local gravity is 9.6m/s^2"

now I understand more :) thanks a lot! Doc Al & 1994Bhaskar ^_^

so more likely it's

9.6/9.8x60=58.8kgf

problem [SOLVED]

admins/mods you can close the thread now if you want ^_^
