# How would your weight change if you doubled your distance from the center of the earth?

As gravity declines with the square of the distance, your weight should be reduced to 25%.

### If your mass on earth is m your mass at a distance of 3 earth radii from the center of the earth will be while your weight will be?

If your mass is 'm', then your mass is 'm', regardless of whether you're on the earth, 2 earth radii out in space, or on the moon. Mass doesn't change. -- On the surface, your distance from the center of the earth is 1 earth radius. Weight is inversely proportional to the square of the distance from the center of the earth, so at a distance of 3 earth radii from the center, your…

### What would happn to your weight if the radius and mass of earth doubled?

The formula for the gravitational force is F = G my me / R2 . F = your weight G = gravitational constant my = your mass me = earth's mass R = distance between your center of mass and earth's center of mass G and my don't change in this discussion, so we'll represent them by 'K'. Original weight = K me / R2 New weight = K (2me ) / (2R)2 = K…

### What will happen to the weight of an object if you take the object to the deepest valley of the earth?

Since the weight of an object is calculated as the product of its mass times the mass of the Earth divided by the square of the distance between the object being weighed and the center of the Earth, almost no perceivable change will occur. This is because the two masses do not change, and the square of the distance from the Earth's center changes only slightly even in the deepest valley.

### What will be different on Saturn your mass or your weight why?

Mass is a property of the object, no matter what else is around. It doesn't change, regardless of where the object is. Weight is the result of gravitational interaction between the object and something else, so it depends on what else is around. Your weight on Saturn would be different from your weight on Earth, because Saturn's mass is different from Earth'smass, and your distance from Saturn's center would be different from the distance between…

### What is center of stability and why must it be above a ship's center of gravity?

A ship's center of stability is known as the metacentre. If you add weight to the side of a ship the moment created will cause it will roll. There has to be a restoring moment otherwise the ship will capsize. This restoring moment is due to the change in the submerged volume, hence change in center of buoyancy. This acts at the 'center of stability' where BM(distance from center of buoyancy to metacenter) = Inertia/Displacement…

### If earths mass doubled without changing its size what would your weight do?

You asked what would happen to your weight if the earth's mass doubled (due to a density increase) without changing in size. There are three very useful equations in this context. First, weight = mass * gravity. Second, force = mass * acceleration. Third, gravity = (g-constant (your mass * earth's mass))/distance between the masses squared. It happens that the first two equations mean the same thing. For this to be true, weight would have…

### Why does weight depend on where you are?

Weight is determined by mass x acceleration due to gravity. The mass of an object doesn't change; however, the acceleration due to gravity varies depending on the distance from the center of an object. A person weighs less on the top of a mountain than at the bottom of a valley. Gravity depends on the masses of the objects and the distance between them.

### Why do you say the weight is a force?

Weight is determined by mass x acceleration due to gravity. The mass of an object doesn't change; however, the acceleration due to gravity varies depending on the distance from the center of an object. A person weighs less on the top of a mountain than at the bottom of a valley. Gravity depends on the masses of the objects and the distance between them.

### How do you calculate the center of gravity for a vehicle?

You need to get the weight on the front and rear axles, add them together to get the total weight. Divide each axle by the total to percentage on each axle. Measure the distance from center to center of axle. Times the distance by the percentage, and that is the distance the center of gravity is from the other axle. An example: A car weighing 3500lbs has a weight distribution of 60% front/40 %rear and…

### Weight of an object will be minimum when placed at?

The weight of an object will be minimum at high point like mountain. This is because weight depends on acceleration due to gravity and acceleration due to gravity is inversely proportional to the square of distance from center of earth to the object. As high places like mountain is far from earth center, there is minimun weight. But at the center of earth the weight becomes null as gravity pull takes place in all direction…

### Why is gravity different on different places?

Because gravitational force is a function of both the masses of the objects, and the distance between the objects that are attracting one another. If you move to a different spot on earth, Your mass and the earth's mass doesn't change, but the distance between the center of your body and the center of the Earth could change. So the closer you are to the center of the earth, the greater the gravity. The further…

### When the distance between an object and the center of the Earth is increased what happens?

The objects Mass would remain the same and the weight would decrease. This is because mass is the measure of the amount of material in an object and depends only on the number the number of atoms. Therefore if the distance was so large that the object was on the moon the number of atoms would not change. The weight on the other hand would decrease because weight is the measure of gravitational force acting…

### How does weight change as you move away from or towards the center of gravity?

Weight is technically the force that gravity exerts on you. Mass is how much matter you "are". Mass times the acceleration of gravity will equal your weight. Newton discovered that the force of gravity [your weight] is equal to a constant times the mass of the planet times the mass of you all divided by the radius to the center squared. This equation shows that the weight is inversely proportional to the radius to the…

### Why can an objects weight vary with location but its mass cannot?

Mass is an inherent property of an object and it does not change. Most commonly, we weigh objects on the earth. An object's weight depends on the attraction by gravity to another object. The formula for weight on the earth is weight = (a constant) x (mass of object) x (mass of earth)/(d-squared) where d = distance between center of mass of object and center of mass of earth d-squared is the distance d, raised…

### An astrounaut lands on a planet that has the same mass as earth and twice the diameterhow does the astrounaut's weight differ from that on earth?

The force between two objects due to gravity is proportional to the product of the two masses. That part doesn't change compared to his weight on earth. The force is also inversely proportional to the square of the distance between their centers. On the planet with a diameter equal to twice the earth's diameter, the distance is changed by a factor of 2, so the force is changed by a factor of (1/22) = 1/4…
