Question

A bag of sugar weighs 3.00 lb on Earth. What would it weigh in newtons on the Moon, where the free-fall acceleration is one-sixth that on Earth? 
 N 

Repeat for Mars, where g is 0.385 times that on Earth. 
 N 

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

Earth     kg
Moon     kg
Mars     kg
