Problem 19E

At the surface of Jupiter’s moon Io, the acceleration due to gravity is g = 1.81 m/s2. A watermelon weighs 44.0 N at the surface of the earth. (a) What is the watermelon’s mass on the earth’s surface? (b) What would be its mass and weight on the surface of Io?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution to 19E Step 1 Mass of an object is an fundamental quantity. Mass of the body remains same even if it is placed in some other planet whose acceleration due gravity is different. 2 Acceleration due to gravity in Io =1.80m/s Acceleration due to gravity in earth =9.8m/s
