Local Gravity on the Moon

Question by Guest | 23/03/2018 at 19:21

Everybody knows since the sixth grade that the mean local gravity (gravitational acceleration) on earth is 9.81 m/s² (at the equator it is slightly smaller, at the poles of the earth a bit larger).

But now I would like to calculate the weight of an object whose mass I know on the moon. Does anyone know the location factor that can be used for the moon?

The local gravity respectively location factor on the surface of the moon is 1.62 m/s². This makes the same object about six times lighter on the Moon than on Earth.

Here you can also find the local gravitations of other planets.
