# How many moons would it take to equal the mass of earth?

# 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…rth as well as on moon.

# How would the moon move if earths mass increased?

it would move very slow

# How many ping-pong balls does it take to equal the mass of Earth?

According to a contribution elsewhere on WikiAnswers, the international official mass of a ball (they're very sensitive about that) is 2.7 grams = 2.7 x 10-3 kg. The mass …of the earth is listed in another source as 5.97 X 1024 kg. (5.97 x 1024) / (2.7 x 10-3) = 2.211 x 1027 balls. (rounded) You were probably looking forward to the thrill of seeing the big number, so here it is: 2.211 x 1027 = 2,211,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 balls. (rounded)

# 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…000 hours (~somewhat over a month). And if you were going at 4000 km/hr, it would be a mere 100 hours (~ 4 days or so). At the speed of light? A little over a second. At the speed of a pedestrian? ~5km/hr for 12 hrs/day, every day, makes 60km/day or somewhat over 18 years.

# How many electrons would it take to the equal the mass of a proton?

Approximatley 1836

# 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…eight that is different due to the force of gravity. The mass of a body is a measure of how much matter it contains. Yes, mass is the same everywhere. Weight on the other hand depends on the gravity where the object is located. An object that weighs 100 pounds on Earth would weigh 16.6 pounds on the Moon Yes, mass is the same. Mass is a measurement of how much matter an object contains. Mass is not affected by gravity. Mass will stay the same. the weight will change due to gravity. ! Your mass on the moon would be the same as your mass on earth. Mass is the actual amount of matter present. Your weight would change since the moon has a different gravitational acceleration than earth. We = ( m ) ( ge ) Wm = ( m ) ( gm ) _________________________________________________________________________________________________ The mass is the samethe Moon has about 1/6th the gravity on earth. Accordingly, the weight on the moon is 1/6th the weight on earth.

# How many electrons would it take to equal the mass of a proton?

1800 electrions

# How many eggs would it take to reach from the earth to the moon?

Good question! A typical chicken egg is about 5 cm in length, thought they may vary in size widely. The distance to the moon is 384,403 kilometres, or about 7,…688,060,000 eggs.

# How many earths would it take to equal the mass of the sun?

It would take about 333,000 earths to match the mass of the sun.

# Why would the motion of the moon change if the mass of the earth increased?

Because the gravitational force of attraction between two masses depends on the product of their masses ... in other words, it depends on both masses.

# An object has a mass of 120 g on earth what would it be on the moon?

The mass would be exactly the same. The weight would change, and would be about 1/6 as much on the Moon.

# 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… kg. So the Sun is 332946 times the mass of the Earth. The Sun's diameter is about 100 times that of the Earth. So, you'd have to line up 109 Earth's end-to-end to stretch across the face of the Sun and it would take about 1,000,000 Earths to fill the volume of the Sun.

# 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…ze of the Earth; the Earth is significantly larger.

# 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…rement of the pull of gravity on an object. 2) Mass is measured by using a balance comparing a known amount of matter to an unknown amount of matter. Weight is measured on a scale. 3) The Mass of an object doesn't change when an object's location changes. Weight, on the otherhand does change with location. The weight of a 100 pound "earth" brick will be only about 17 pounds on the moon. The mass of the brick doesn't change no matter where the "matter" is.

# Why would your mass be the same on Earth and the Moon?

mass is not variable and does not change. It is weight that changes - weight = mass x gravity acceleration so weight is less on the moon.
