What is the mass measured on another planet ?

  1. Jan 11, 2013 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    See attachment

    2. Relevant equations

    W = mg

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I did this :

    W(on Mars) = 93*8.8 (since the measuring machine was calibrated on venus)
    Mass = 93*8.8/3.8

    My answer is 215Kg.

    Can someone confirm its validity ?
