Step 1

The weight of the astronaut on Earth is 700 N, the acceleration of the astronaut towards the moon is 1.62 m/s2 and the mass of the moon is 7.34×1022 kg.

Step 2

Weight on earth is mass times the gravitational acceleration on earth.

Let W be the weight of the astronaut on earth, mA be the mass of the astronaut and g be the gravitational acceleration on earth.

Write the expression for the weight of the astronaut and rearrange for the mass of the astronaut

Step 3

Substitute 700 N for W and 9.8 m/s2 for in the above eq...
