How many moons would it take to equal the mass f earth? I am going to assume you are referring the Earth's moon. This is a rather simple calculation. We simply take the mass of the Earth, and divide by the mass of the moon. We can express the formula like this.

mass of moon * number of moons = mass of Earth
therefore
mass of Earth ÷ mass of moon = number of moons

The mass of the moon is approx. 7.347 7 × 1022 kg. The mass of the Earth is 5.9736×1024 kg. Now, it is a simple matter of division, and we can get the number 81.30081 recurring, so lets just say 81.3.

How long would it take from earth to the moon?

  Obviously that would depend on your speed. 400000 km distance divided by, say, 40 km/hr would take you 10000 hours (over a year). At 400 km/hr it would only take you 1

Would your mass be the same on the moon as on the earth?

Your weight would change because of the Moon's lower gravity, but your mass would remain the same because no matter is added or taken away from you Mass is the same, it is w

How many earth's would it take to equal 1 sun using mass?

The Sun is by far the largest object in our solar system. It contains 98% of the solar system's total mass. The Earth's mass is 5.9736×1024 kg. The Suns mass is 1.9891 ×1030

Why would a brick on the moon have the same mass on earth?

Mass vs. Weight To understand the differences we need to compare a few points: 1) Mass is a measurement of the amount of matter something contains, while Weight is the measu
