Answer:

#1240N#

Explanation:

Well, we first need to convert #110lbs# into #kg#.

#1kg=2.2lbs#

#:.110lbs=50kg#

Weight is given by the equation

#W=mg#

#W# is the weight in newtons #(N)#

#m# is the mass in #kg#

#g# is the gravitational acceleration

The gravitational acceleration on Jupiter is around #24.8m"/"s^2#.

#:.W=50*24.8=1240N#
