Your ‘weight’ is determined by how much force you apply to the ground. This force is called gravity, and gravity depends on how massive an object is. Larger objects, like the Earth, have more gravity than smaller ones, like the Moon. Gravity on the Moon is 1/6 as strong as it is on Earth, therefore, your weight on the Moon is 1/6 your weight on Earth.
Using the information above and your calculator, please answer the following questions.
a) Determine your weight on the Moon if you weighed 100 pounds on Earth.
b) Determine your weight on the Moon if you weighed 75 kg on Earth.
c) Watch the short .gif below. Why do you think he bounces when he walks?
