Asked Sep 1, 2019

The Moon’s mass is 1/80 that of Earth, and the lunar radius is 1/4 of Earth’s radius. Based on these figures, calculate the total weight on the Moon of a 100-kg astronaut with a 50-kg spacesuits and backpack, relative to his or her weight on Earth.

Step 1

__Given:__

Step 2

Calculating the relation between acceleration due to gravity of moon and earth:

Let the acceleration due to gravity on moon is g_{M} and on earth it is g_{E.}

Step 3

Calculating the weight of the astronaut on the moon:
