Answer:

#6# times that of the Moon's

Explanation:

Acceleration due to gravity on any astronomical body is:

#g_(body)=GM_(body)/r_(body)^2#

#g_(Earth)=GM_(Earth)/r_(Earth)^2#

#g_(Mo on)=GM_(Mo on)/r_(Mo on)^2#

You can Google/Bing/Yahoo for the masses and the radii of the Earth and the Moon and find the ratio #g_(Earth)/g_(Mo on)#. It should be around #6#.
