How much would a 600-pound person weigh on the moon?
100 pounds The gravity on the moon is approximalty 1/6 that of earth's gravity. *** To be more precise it's 102 pounds. The moon's gravity is about 17 percent that of earth's. Multiply any weight in earth by 0.17 to get its weight in the moon.
The moon is much smaller than the earth. If you were to weigh yourself on a scale here on earth and then could take that same scale to the moon and weigh yourself there, the weight read on the moon would be 1/6 your earth weight. So, If you weighed 100 pounds on earth, you would weigh only about 16 pounds on the moon.
people weigh less on the moon that's why astronauts wear heavy equipment ======================================================= Weight, unlike mass, is affected by gravity. As the Moon's gravity is approximately one sixth the Earth's, a person on the Moon would weigh one sixth of what they weigh on Earth. Their mass, however, would stay the same.
