# Is mass the same on Earth and the moon?

## Is mass the same on Earth and the moon?

The moon’s mass—the amount of material that makes up the moon—is about one-eightieth of the Earth’s mass. Even though your mass would be the same on Earth and the moon, if you weigh 132 pounds (60 kilograms) on Earth, you would weigh about 22 pounds (10 kilograms) on the moon.

### Why is the mass of person on Earth different from that on the moon?

Since the Moon is smaller than Earth, it has a weaker gravitational pull. In fact, the Moon only has 1/6 the gravity that Earth does. This means you weigh six times less on the Moon than you do on Earth!

#### Why is there a difference in weight but not mass between Earth and the moon?

A: Our weight on moon is less than it would be on Earth due to a difference of the strength of gravity on the moon. The moon’s gravitation force is determined by the mass and the size of the moon. This means that if you went to the moon you would weigh less, even though your mass stays the same!

What is the weight of a 100kg person on Earth?

So a 100 kg mass really weighs about 980 Newtons on Earth.

What is the weight difference between Earth and moon?

The moon’s gravitational force is only about 16.6 percent of Earth’s gravity. A 45-kilogram person would weigh 100 lbs. on Earth but only 16.6 lbs. on the moon.

## Does the moon have less mass than Earth?

The Earth’s Moon has considerably less mass than the Earth itself. Not only is the Moon smaller than the Earth, but it is only about 60 percent as dense as Earth. Thus, the gravitational attraction on the Moon is much less than it is here on Earth, and a person weighs less on the Moon.

### How is mass different on the moon?

The weight of an object is a force expressed in Newton (N). It is also defined as the force of gravity acting on the object. Therefore, the mass of an object on the Moon remains the same as its mass on Earth. But its weight gets less because the gravity on the moon is less than on the Earth.

#### What is 75kg in earth?

Answer: It is given that the mass of a man is 75 Kg in earth. The weight of the man in earth can be calculated by W=mg=75×9.8=735 N.

What is mass on moon?

Mass, density and gravity The moon’s mass is 7.35 x 1022 kg, about 1.2 percent of Earth’s mass. Put another way, Earth weighs 81 times more than the moon. The moon’s density is 3.34 grams per cubic centimeter (3.34 g/cm3).

What is the weight difference between earth and moon?

## Is there gravity on moon?

1.62 m/s²
Moon/Gravity

### Why is the moon so big compared to Earth?

The reason for its shape is a result of its mass being great enough so that gravity pulls all of the Moon’s matter toward its center equally. Another distinct property the Moon possesses lies in its size compared to the Earth. At 3,475 km, the Moon’s diameter is over one fourth that of the Earth’s.

#### What would your mass be on the Moon, as compared to on Earth?

Comparing the Mass. The Earth’s mass is also greater than the Moon’s mass. The Earth is massive in size when matched up to the Moon. It would take more than 80 Moons to equal the mass of the Earth, since the Moon’s mass is approximately 1% that the mass of the Earth.

How does the size and mass of the Moon different from Earth?

The moon is 3,476 kilometers in diameter. This is small compared to the Earth, which has a diameter of 12,756 kilometers. The moon’s mass is about 7.35 X 10 to the 22 power (735 with 20 zeroes after it) kilograms while the Earth weighs 5.97 X 10 to the 24 power (597 with 22 zeroes after it) kilograms.

What is the size and mass of the Moon relative to the Earth?

The moon’s mass is 7.35 x 10 22 kg, about 1.2 percent of Earth’s mass. Put another way, Earth weighs 81 times more than the moon. The moon’s density is 3.34 grams per cubic centimeter (3.34 g/cm 3). That is about 60 percent of Earth’s density.
