Homework Help: Moons Gravity

  1. Jan 20, 2010 #1
    19. The acceleration due to gravity on the Moon is 1/6 of that on Earth. The weight of a 10 kg
    mass on the Moon is
    A. 98 N
    B. 60 N
    C. 16 N
    D. 1.7 N
    (For this question I divided 9.81 by 6 and the multiplyed this by 10)
    Is this the correct way to do it ?

    Yes,
    You work out what a 10kg mass would weigh on earth = 10 * 9.8N
    and divide by 6 for the moon
