 # Selina Solutions Class 9 Physics Solutions for Exercise 3E in Chapter 3 - Chapter 3 Laws Of Motion

A man weighs 600N on earth. What would be his approximate weight on the moon? Give reason for your answer?

Given: the weight of a man on earth = 600N

Weight of the man on moon = 1/6 weight of a man on earth;

It is because the acceleration due to gravity on the moon is 1/6th of earth,

w=mg

∴ Weight of the man on the moon = 600/6 = 100N

hello everyone welcome to lido learning i am good great your science tutor today's question is a man weighs 600 newton on earth what would be his approximate weight on the moon give reason for your answer so you have to calculate the weight of man on the moon when his weight on earth is 600 newtons so let's start our answer here weight of man on earth is equals to 600 newtons and we know that weight of man on moon is equals to 1 by 6 of weight of man on earth so this will be equals to 1 by 6 into 600 that is 100 newton this will be the weight of man on the moon this is due to the acceleration due to gravity to gravity on moon is 1 6 of the earth so this is why the weight of man on the moon will also be one by six of weight of man on earth for more such videos please subscribe leader learning and for any doubts drop a comment thank you
