##### 1 Answer

This utilises

#### Explanation:

For the object on Earth:

Its weight:

For the object on the Planet:

(if the diameter of the planet is half of Earth's, the radius is half of Earth's)

Its weight:

Now from equations (1) and (2) we can find the ratio.

Ratio of mass of earth to mass of planet is
