A bag of sugar weighs 1.50 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 Neptune, where *g* is 1.44 times that on Earth.

Find the mass of the bag of sugar in kilograms at each of the three locations.(earth, moon, neptune)

Step 1

Let the mass of the sugar bag be denoted by *m*.

Let the weight of the sugar bag on the earth be denoted by *W*

From the data given in the problem,

Step 2

Weight of the bag of sugar on the moon denoted as *W _{m}* when the acceleration due to gravity there is 1/6 times that of the Earth is given by,

Step 3

Substitute 0.68 kg for *m*, 9.81 m/s2 for *g* and solve for *Wm...*
