gravity on the moon is only 1/6th as strong as gravity on earth. The acceleration of gravity is 10m/s squared

A - what is the weight of a 26kg object on the earth? answer in units of N

B - What is the weight on the moon? answer in units of N

C - What is the mass on earth? answer in units of kg

D- what is the mass on the moon? answer in units of kg

For part A

1N = 1kg * acceleration of gravity(10m/s)

so 260N = 26kg * 10 m/s squared?

for part B

1N = 1kg * acceleration of gravity (1.6667)

43.3333N = 26kg * 1.6667????

however i am not sure what to do for part c and d
