Question

- A bag of sugar weighs 1.00 lb on Earth. What would it weigh in newtons on the Moon, where the free-fall acceleration is one-sixth that on Earth?  

-Repeat for Pluto, where g is 0.665 times that on Earth. 

-Find the mass of the bag of sugar in kilograms at each of the three locations.

Earth= ?kg

Moon= ?kg

Pluto=?kg
