An object's mass is 120 kg\SI{120}{\kilo\gram}. When it is taken away to the moon, it is noticed that the object's mass remains the same but its weight has changed.

What will be the weight (in Newtons) of the object on the moon?

Details and Assumptions:

  • g=9.8 m/s2.g=\SI[per-mode=symbol]{9.8}{\meter\per\second\squared}.
  • The acceleration due to gravity on the moon is 16\frac{1}{6} of that on Earth.
