# If you weighed 110 pounds on Earth, how many pounds would you weigh on Jupiter?

Feb 10, 2018

$1240 N$

#### Explanation:

Well, we first need to convert $110 l b s$ into $k g$.

$1 k g = 2.2 l b s$

$\therefore 110 l b s = 50 k g$

Weight is given by the equation

$W = m g$

$W$ is the weight in newtons $\left(N\right)$

$m$ is the mass in $k g$

$g$ is the gravitational acceleration

The gravitational acceleration on Jupiter is around $24.8 m \text{/} {s}^{2}$.

$\therefore W = 50 \cdot 24.8 = 1240 N$
