Best Answer

If your mass is 27.2 kilograms,
then your weight is about . . .

-- 60 pounds on earth

-- 10 pounds on the moon

-- 1,684 pounds on the sun

-- 23 pounds on Mars

-- 141 pounds on Jupiter

The acceleration of gravity, and therefore the force due to gravity, on the surface of the moon is roughly 1/6th of what it is at the surface of the earth. So a person who weighs 120 pounds on the earth would weigh about 20 pounds on the moon ... not counting the space suit, air conditioner, batteries, radio, helmet, gloves, boots, and oxygen tank he has to carry in order to survive and communicate on the moon's surface.

he would weigh exactly 35 lbs. bc you can just simply divide the weight you are by 6. so that is the answer! if a man weighs 210 on earth than how much does he way on the moon and the answer is so simply 35.

Why do you call him "a 100 lb person", knowing full well that his weight depends on where he is ?

If the person weighs 100 pounds on Earth, then he would weigh 16.2 pounds on the moon,

not counting all the gear and equipment and stuff he would need just to stay alive there.

Very interesting ! I don't know. Let's find out.

My mass is about 84 kilograms. I and the earth are attracted to each other with a mutual force of about 822.4 newtons.

The gravitational force between two objects is [ F = G m1m2/ R2 ].

G = universal gravitational constant = 6.6742 x 10-11
m1 = mass of one object (me) = 84 kilograms
m2 = mass of the other object (the sun) = 1.98 x 1030 kilograms
R = distance between centers of the objects = radius of the sun = 6.95 x 108 meters

F = G m1m2/ R2 = (6.6742 x 10-11) (84) (1.98 x 1030) / (6.95 x 108)2

= [ (6.6742 x 84 x 1.98) / (48.3025) ] x ( 10-11+30-16 )

= 22.98 x 103 = 22,980 Newtons.

In the more familiar English units, that's about 5,170 pounds, or 2.58 tons.

I'm guessing that's not as much weight as we all expected.

It's probably because ... remember ... gravity falls off as the square of the distance between the centers, and even though the sun has this colossal mass, I'm standing 864,000 miles from its center, which is more than 3-1/2 times as far as the moon is from the earth !

The acceleration of gravity on the surface of Pluto is estimated at 0.58 m/s2 ,

compared to 9.8 m/s2 on the earth's surface.

This means that for every 100 pounds that you weigh on earth, you would weigh

about 5.9 pounds on Pluto.

If a person's weight depends on where he is, then what exactly is a "90-pound person" ?

A person who weighs 90 pounds on the earth would weigh about 32.3 pounds on Mars.

Also, 14.7 pounds on the moon.

The surface gravity of Titan is approximately 0.14g. Compare this to Earth's surface gravity of just under 1.0g. This means a person weighing 100 pounds on Earth would weigh around 14 pounds on Titan.

Right there in the question, you accept the natural fact that his weight is different

in different places. So what makes you call him a 198-pound man ?

Maybe you put that label on him because that's what he weighs on Earth ? If that's

the case, then his mass is about 89.81 kilograms, and if he ever travels to the surface

of the moon, he'll weigh about 32.7 pounds there.

You would have the same mass, but the gravitational attraction that the sun is providing would be hundreds of millions of times stronger than the Earth's gravitational attraction.

So let's say you weighed 140lbs on Earth. Multiply 140lbs by 300,000,000 or so and that is about how much you would weigh on the sun.
