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.

Why would an equal arm balance read the same mass on earth as well as the moon?

Since the balance depends on gravity being equal on both sides of  the arm, the actual value of gravity is not important. Hence the  reading of the balance is the same on ea

Will you have more mass on earth or on the moon?

Your mass is the same wherever you go. You weigh more on the Earth, because your weight depends on your own mass and on the mass that's attracting you to it, and Earth's mass

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

How many moons would equal the diameter of the earth?

The Moon is one-fourth the diameter of the Earth, so that means that four Moons would fit into the diameter of the Earth. This does not mean that the Moon is one-fourth the si

Why is your mass be the same on earth and the moon?

Because mass is not the same as weight. A 1kg mass weights 1kg on the moon, the sun, and on earth. On earth a 1kg mass would weigh 2.2 lbs. On the moon it would weigh less and
