At the surface of a certain planet, the gravitational acceleration g has a magnitude of 12.0 m/s2. A 21.0-kg brass ball is transported to this planet. What is (a) the mass of the brass ball on the Earth and on the planet, and (b) the weight of the brass ball on the Earth and on the planet?

Solution 29 P

Step 1 of 3:

In this question, we need to find the mass of the brass ball on the Earth and on planet

In part b, we need to find the weight of the brass ball on Earth and on planet

Data given

Mass of brass ball

Gravitational acceleration on planet

Part a:

Step 2 of 3:

We need to find the mass of the brass ball on the Earth and on planet

Mass of an object is independent of its location

Hence the mass of brass ball remains same on Earth and on planet

That is mass

Part b:
