Question

A bag of sugar has a mass of 2.26 kg. What is its weight in newtons on the moon, where the acceleration due to gravity is one-sixth of that on Earth? (Hint: On Earth, $g=9.8 \mathrm{m} / \mathrm{s}^{2}$.)

Step 1

1 of 3We are given $g_M$ that is six times smaller than $g_E=9.8\frac{\text{m}}{s^2}$.

$\begin{aligned} &g_M=\dfrac{g_E}{6}\\ &g_M=\dfrac{9.8\frac{\text{m}}{s^2}}{6}\\ &g_M=1.63\frac{\text{m}}{s^2}\\ \end{aligned}$

Also, we are given a mass of a bag of sugar $m=2.26\text{ kg}$.
