What is the weight of a 76-kg astronaut (a) on Earth, (b) on the Moon (g = 1.7 m/s2), (c) on Mars (g = 3.7 m/s2), (d) in outer space traveling with constant velocity?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Step-by-step solution Step 1 of 1 If suppose, F1 is along west, F2 along north, then resultant is in north-west, and force to cause this to be in equilibrium will be opposite to resultant in south-east). The vector can in general be represented as a straight line with an arrow head. The length of the line indicates the magnitude of that vector and the arrow head indicates the direction of the vector. The following figure shows the alignment...
