The weight of an astronaut plus his space suit on the Moon is only 250 N. How much do they weigh on Earth? What is the mass on the Moon? On Earth?
Solution 13 PE
Step 1 of 4 :
In this question, we need weight of astronaut plus his suit on Earth
In the second part, we need to find the mass of astronaut plus his suit on moon
In third part, we need to find the mass of astronaut plus his suit on Earth
Weight on moon
Step 2 of 4 :
We should know gravitational force on moon
Weight is given by
Rearranging to find mass
Substituting values we get
Hence we have obtained mass as
