Yes, the measurement of your weight certainly depends on gravity as weight is mass multiplied by gravity, w=mg. Therefore, on the moon you would weigh less as your mass would stay the same but the gravitational field strength is less. The affect of gravity on height is not so obvious, although a stronger gravitational pull would cause the spine to contract, altering a persons height by mere millimetres.

How do you find the gravitational potential energy if you have the weight in newtons and the acceleration and the height?

The gravitational potential energy is the product of (mass) x (acceleration due to gravity) x height). The first two terms ... (mass) x (acceleration due to gravity) ... are the object's weight. So if you already know its weight, then the gravitational potential energy is just (weight) x (height) and you don't need to use gravity at all.

How much force to lift 50 kilograms onto a shelf 3 meters high?

The height is irrelevant. The energy required depends on the height; the force does not. The weight of an object, and therefore the force required to lift it, is mass x gravity - about 500 Newtons.The height is irrelevant. The energy required depends on the height; the force does not.

What is the potential energy of hydrogen balloon?

It depends on its weight and height from earth surface and the earth gravity.


Does the force of gravity most affect weight or volume or height or mass?

I don't know. Figure it out on your own.

If you were given the length width and weight of an object could you find the volume of the object?

No. You need the length, width and height. If you had weight but not height, you would need the density (or the specific gravity). Strictly speaking, you need mass, not weight because with weight you would also need the accelaration due to gravity.

When you throw a substance in air at what height there in no gravity at what height there is least gravity and at what height there is normal gravity?

The farther it is from Earth, the less gravity will there be. Gravity will never completely disappear.


What is the gravitational potential energy of an object is equal to its weight multiplied by its?

The gravitational potential energy is equal to: GPE = mass x gravity x height Or equivalently: GPE = weight x height

What is gravity's relationship to weight?

Gravity is the cause of weight. Increased gravity creates increased weight, decreased gravity decreases weight.
