# If a man has a mass of 83 kilograms on earth, what will the force of gravity on his body be on the moon?

###### Question:

## Answers

The answer is (A.) 135.6 N

————

Here is the formula you will need to answer the question.

Formula:

Force(N) = Mass(kg) x Acceleration(m/s²)

or... F(N) = m(kg) x a(m/s²)

————

We need to be certain of the information presented. The problem says the man has a "Mass" of 83 kilograms on Earth. If a man has a Mass of 83 kilograms on Earth, he has a mass of 83 kilograms everywhere. The mass for this problem (even on the moon) is 83.

Mass(kg): 83

To find the acceleration of object on other planets, moons, ect, you'll need to search the internet or ask a teacher. There are ways to calculate this, but the problem didn't supply the necessary information to do so.

Acceleration: 1.625 m/s²

————

Now just plug the information into the formula.

F(N) = m(kg) x a(m/s²)

N = 83 x 1.625

N= 135.875

When considering that there could be a slighty more accurate number for acceleration, it can be concluded that the best answer is (A.)

[tex]If a man has a mass of 83 kilograms on earth, what will the force of gravity on his body be on the m[/tex]

1/6 of the weight on earth or 20 kgs

814.4 N is the answer

135.57N

Explanation:

Force of gravity on earth = Mass * acceleration due to gravity

Mass = 83kg

acceleration due to gravity = 9.8m/s²

Force on gravity on earth (Fe) = 83 * 9.8 = 813.4N

But force of gravity on moon (Fm) = 1/6th of earth

Hence, his force of gravity on moon would be 1/6th of 813.4

(Fm) = 1/6 * 813.4 = 135.57 N

A. 135.6

Explanation:

If a man has a mass of 83 kilograms on Earth, the force of gravity on his body be on the moon 135.6N. force =mass*acc , 83 * 9.8/6= 813.4/6 = 135.6N

First, we need to know what's the gravity value in the moon. it is 1.622 m/ s2

to find the force, let's recall this formula> Force= mass x gravity

force= 83 kg x 1.622= 134.6

A is the closest choice.

I believe you would weigh 30.3 pounds on the moon.

Mass= weight x g

g on earth= 10

The mans weight is therefore 8.3 because 83/10= 8.3

g on the moon =1.6666

1.67 x 8.3 = 13.8kg

the mans mass will be 13.8kg on the moon!

Hope this helps!!! Xx

The man's mass doesn't change, no matter where he is.

Weight = (mass) x (gravity)

The acceleration due to gravity on the Moon is about 1.62 m/s² .

Weight of 83 kg on the Moon = (83 kg) x (1.62 m/s²) = 134.7 newtons

(about 30.3 pounds)
