Suppose you weigh 105 . How much would you weigh on other planets in our solar system? Assume you can stand either on the surface or in an airplane in the planet's atmosphere. (Hint: Recall from Chapter Light and Matter that weight is mass times the acceleration of gravity. The surface gravity column in the table below tells you how the acceleration of gravity on other planets compares to that on Earth.)

  1. Use your table, or one like it, to obtain the factor you will use to multiply by 105 pounds. There are plenty of such tables on the internet.

    The weight will be the same whether on the surface or in an airplane in the same planet's atmosphere.
