What has more Gravity Mars or the Moon?

Mars has more gravity than the moon because Mars has 38% of gravity and the moon has 16.7% of gravity ;therefore, Mars has more gravity than the moon.


On the moon would you feel lighter or heavier than the earth?

you would feel lighter because of the less gravity on mars so the less gravity on the moon;)


Why is the moon have less gravity?

Gravity is directly proportional to the mass (weight) of an object. The moon does have less pull of gravity than the Earth, but it has lots more pull of gravity than, say, the 2 moons of Mars.




Is there enough gravity on mars to walk on?

For sure. Mars has about twice the gravity of the Moon and the astronauts could walk there. Mars has about a third of the gravity of the Earth, so you could walk quite happily - albeit with a lot less effort.


Would a elephant weigh more or less on the moon than it would weigh on earth?

Less. The Moon has less gravity than Earth.Less. The Moon has less gravity than Earth.Less. The Moon has less gravity than Earth.Less. The Moon has less gravity than Earth.


Does mars have 62 times less gravity than earth?

No. The gravity on Mars is about 38% that on Earth. So Mars has about 62 percent less gravity.


Why is there less gravity on the moon?

The moon has less mass than Earth. Gravity is proportional to mass, so there is less gravity on the moon.


Is there gravity on Mars less earth?

Yes. The effects of gravety on Mars are less than on Earth. Mars has 37.6% of Earth's gravity.


Why the gravity of moon is less than earth?

Gravity is caused by mass. The MASS of the Moon is far less than the mass of the Earth, which is why the gravity of the Moon is less.


Why is there no gravity on the moon?

There is gravity on the moon, just less of it, because the moon has less mass than the earth.


Why would astronauts weigh less on Mars?

Because there is less gravity on Mars.


How much less gravity does mars have than earth?

The surface gravity on Mars is about 38% of the Earth's. So the Earth's gravity is about 2.63 times the gravity of Mars.


Would you be squashed by the extreme gravity on mars?

Mars does not have extreme gravity! It is less than 40% of the earth's gravity.


Why is the moon gravity less then earth's gravity?

Because the moon has less mass than earth.


Why is gravity different on the moon than on the moon?

Gravity depends on mass. More mass in Earth means more gravity on Earth; less mass in the Moon equals less gravity on the Moon.


Why no gravity on moon?

There Is gravity on the Moon. It's less than the gravity on the Earth, because the Moon is smaller than the Earth, but, there is gravity on the Moon.


If you're on Mars will you be squashed by the gravity?

No. The strength of gravity on Mars is less than half of that on Earth.


What has more gravity moon or mars?

Mars has 38% approximative gravity to that of Earth, meaning Earth has almost three times as much. While the moon has 16.7% that of the Earth. Meaning Mars has a stronger gravitational pull then that of the moon.


Why is there less or no gravity on the moon then there is on earth?

There is gravity on the moon. It is about on sixth what it is on Earth. This is because the moon has less mass than Earth does.


Why is your weight different on the moon?

Weight is mass times gravity, and there is less gravity on the moon, therefore you weigh less on the moon.


Why does mars have the weakest gravity?

It doesn't. As an example, the acceleration of gravity on the surface of Earth's moon is less than 1/2 of what it is on the surface of Mars. The strength of gravity on any astronomical body is determined by both its mass and radius. Those are the answers to any "why" gravity question.


Why does Mercury and Mars have less gravity than Earth?

Why does Mercury and Mars have less gravity than Earth because they both have less mass than does the Earth.


Why the moon has no gravity?

The moon does have gravity. It's about one-sixth of the gravity we have on earth. You would weigh less if you were on the moon.
