Textbook Problem

The heaviest invertebrate is the giant squid, which is estimated to have a weight of about 2 tons spread out over its length of 70 feet. What is its weight in newtons?

To determine
The weight of the squid in newton.

Explanation

Given info: The mass of the squid is 2 tons.

The formula to calculate the weight of squid is,

W=mg (1)

Here,

m is the mass of squid.

g is the acceleration due to gravity.

1 ton is equal to 907.185 kg. Therefore, the mass of the squid in terms of kg is,

m=(2)(907.185)=1814.37kg

Substitute 1814.37 kg for m and 9.8ms2 for g in Equation (1) to find W.

W=(1814
