# Does distance affect weight?

## Does distance affect weight?

Since the gravitational constant (g) depends on the square of the distance from the center of the earth, the weight of an object decreases with altitude.

## What would I weigh on moon?

Your weight on the Moon is 16.5% what you would experience on Earth. In other words, if you weighed 100 kg on Earth, you would weigh a mere 16.5 kg on the Moon. For you imperial folks, imagine you tipped the scales at 200 pounds. Your weight on the Moon would only be 33 pounds.

## How much do I weigh on the moon converter?

Being that it takes the weight of an object on earth and converts it to lunar weight, the formula is Weight on the Moon= (Weight on Earth/9.81m/s2) * 1.622m/s2. To find the weight on the moon, we divide the weight on earth by the earth’s force of gravity, which is 9.81m/s2.

## Do things weigh less in a vacuum?

Why do objects weigh more in a vacuum? When we weigh some object in air it displaces air in that space which provides little upward force which make it weigh less. Upward force cancels the force due to gravity.

## What is my weight on different planets?

Your weight is different on other planets because the gravity is different. You have not changed of course, so your mass is always the same. We calculate weight by multiplying mass by the gravity on the surface of the planet.

## What is the weight on Callisto?

Callisto (moon)

Discovery
Volume 5.9×1010 km3 (0.0541 Earths)
Mass (1.075938±0.000137)×1023 kg (0.018 Earths)
Mean density 1.8344±0.0034 g/cm3
Surface gravity 1.235 m/s2 (0.126 g)

## How many G is on Mars?

On top that, the gravity on Mars’ surface is much lower than it is here on Earth – 62% lower to be precise. At just 0.376 of the Earth standard (or 0.376 g), a person who weighs 100 kg on Earth would weigh only 38 kg on Mars.

## Does Jupiter have 79 moons?

The planet Jupiter now has a total of 79 identified moons. More than 400 years after Galileo Galilei discovered the first of Jupiter’s moons, astronomers have found a dozen more — including one they’ve dubbed “oddball” — orbiting the planet. That brings the total number of Jovian moons to 79.

## Does Earth have 3 moons?

After more than half a century of speculation, it has now been confirmed that Earth has two dust ‘moons’ orbiting it which are nine times wider than our planet. Scientists discovered two extra moons of Earth apart from the one we have known for so long. Earth doesn’t have just one moon, it has three.
