An astronaut's pack weighs 15.3 N when she is on earth but only 3.05 N when she is at the surface of an asteroid.

a. What is the acceleration due to gravity on this asteroid?

B. what is the mass of the pack on the asteroid?

2. Relevant equations

ok, I know I have to you F=ma; but I am stuck after that. I know my mass which is 3.05 N but what is my force?

3. The attempt at a solution

I tried, but i have two unknowns, I do not what the force is or what the acceleration which is what I am trying to calculate. I know I am missing something or I am overlooking something. Please help if you can. Thanks
