## Homework Statement

If you threw something vertically upward from the moon's surface where

*g*=1.6N/kg [down], how many times higher would it reach compared to throwing it from the surface of the Earth with the same force? Neglect the effect of air resistance on the Earth.

## Homework Equations

I don't know which equations to use. Without other variables, I don't know where to start. I am not necessarily looking for a solution, I just need help at getting my solution started.

I do know that

*g*=9.81N/kg on earth.

F=ma is likely a relevant equation, becuase

*g*is an acceleration and the force and mass are both constants.

## The Attempt at a Solution

*g*(earth)/

*g*moon

=9.81/1.6

=6.13125

Does this make sense? The solution seems much too simple. :(
