Mass and weight are related via the equation W=mg on Earth. Mass is how much matter an object has and weight of mass under a gravitational field (on Earth g=98.0 m/s) Suppose you go to and unknown planet-X where the gravitational field on the planet is g'=23.15 m/s. Will a metal have a higher, lower or the same density on planet -X when compared to Earth. Assume the Volume of the metal doesn't change.

Mass and weight are related via the equation W=mg on Earth. Mass is how much matter an object has and weight of mass under a gravitational field (on Earth g=98.0 m/s) Suppose you go to and unknown planet-X where the gravitational field on the planet is g'=23.15 m/s. Will a metal have a higher, lower or the same density on planet -X when compared to Earth. Assume the Volume of the metal doesn't change.

Step 1

On earth the acceleration due to gravity is 9.8 m/s2.

The unknown planet having acceleration due to gravity 23.15 m /s2. On moving to the planet with higher acceleration due to gravity the weight of object increases as weight depends on g.

Step 2

Weight is the composition of mass and acceleration due to gravity whereas mass is just matter present in the object.

Step 3

Mass doesn’t depends on the acceleration due to gravity of the planet and doesn’t...
