  1. (a) What is the weight in newtons of a 120-lb person?
  2. (b) What is your weight in newtons?

(a)

To determine
Weight of the person.

Explanation of Solution

Given info: Mass is 120 lb .

Explanation:

The expression for weight of the person is,

W=mg

Here,

m is the mass

g is the acceleration due to gravity

Substitute 120 lb for m and 9.8 m/s2 for a .

W=120 lb(0

(b)

To determine
Weight of the person.
