(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A number of objects are taken to the moon, where the acceleration due to gravity is about 1/6 of earth's.Complete the following table:

Item----------Mass on Earth-----Mass on Moon-----Weight on Moon---Weight on Moon

Paper clip ---------1.2 g -------------- g --------------g(f) --------------- dyne

Can of cola -------0.56 lb(m)----------lb(m) ------------lb(f) -- ------------- pdl

Hammer------------1.3 kg -------------kg -------------kg(f) ----------------- N

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I think the mass on Moon will not change..right??!

the weight on Moon(the third column ) = mass*9.8*1/6 ...!!

what is ( dyne, pdl,N)?!! How to convert to these units ??

THANX =)
