Question

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)
