If an object has a mass of 50 kg, what is its weight?

Antworten:

Well, it depends...

Erläuterung:

Weight is given by the formula,

W=mg

• W is the weight of the object in newtons

• m is the mass of the object in kilograms

• g is the gravitational acceleration

On Earth, g=9.8 "m/s"^2. So, the object's weight on Earth will be:

W=50 "kg"*9.8 "m/s"^2

=490 "N"

Can you tell what the object's weight will be on another planet, such as Mars?
