-- Your mass doesn't change, no matter where you are.

-- Your weight on the moon is 16.5% of what it is on Earth.

### What is your weight on earth if your weight on the moon is 36kg?

There is gravity on the moon! The gravity on the Moon is 1/6th that of what is observed on Earth. An object with a weight of 36 kg on Earth would weigh 1/6th that on the Moon. 1/6th of 36kg is, 6 kg. An object with a MASS of 36 kg on Earth would have the same 36 kg MASS on the moon. Mass is the amount of matter that makes up an object, whereas WEIGHT is the measurement of the force of gravity on that MASS. This is why your weight will change when visiting other planets, but your mass stays constant plant to planet!

### What would your weight and mass be if your were on the moon?

Your mass is the same wherever you go. Your weight on the moon is about 16.5% of what it is on Earth.

### Is it true On the moon your mass would be less than it on earth but your weight would be the same?

falseIt is false. Your weight would be less on the moon but your mass would be the same.

### Would your weight and mass change on the moon?

So if you take your weight then divide it by 6.13 that is your on the moon and your mass stays the same.

### Would your weight and mass change if you were on the moon?

(Yes. The mass on the moon is 1/81 than it is on Earth.) No I'm sorry but this is incorrect. Mass is a measure of the number of particles you have, i.e how big you are Weight decreases on the moon, as it is a force caused by gravity.

### Why would your weight would change if you went to the moon but your mass would not?

* Mass doesn't change because of conservation of mass. * Weight changes because it is the product of mass x gravity - and gravity on the Moon is less.

### Would your weight be the same in space as it on earth?

your mass will be the same, but you weight will differ. because as the calculation shows, weight= mass X gravity, and the gravity of the earth is 9.8 m/s2 and the gravity of the moon is 1.622 m/s2. so you weight will not be the same in the moon as of the earth.

### Why your weight would change if you went to the moon but your mass would not?

* Mass doesn't change because of conservation of mass. * Weight changes because it is the product of mass x gravity - and gravity on the Moon is less.

### Is the mass of an elephant the same on the moon as mars?

The mass would be the same. the weight would not.

### Would a person's weight and mass be the same on the moon?

Weight would be different because the moon has less gravity then the earth. (astronauts can jump higher on the moon) Mass would be the same. I do not lose any mass if i go to the moon unless, you cut my arm off.

### An astrounaut has a mass of 200kg.what is the weight on earth and on the moon?

If you weighed 200kg on Earth you would weigh 33.2kg on the Moon. Your mass would stay the same.on earth the mass is equal to the weight.on the moon the weight will be inferior to the mass due to the smaller mass of the moon inducing less gravitational pull
