Astronauts on our moon must function with an acceleration due to gravity of 0.165g .

Part complete
If an astronaut can throw a certain wrench 12.0 m vertically upward on earth, how high could he throw it on our moon if he gives it the same starting speed in both places? h = 72.7 meters
How much longer would it be in motion (going up and coming down) on the moon than on earth?
