Solution

  1. The weight of an object is defined as the force with which the earth attracts the object. It is given as,
    W = F = mg.
  2. The weight of an object depends on the mass of the object and the value of acceleration due to gravity.
  3. If the value of g doubles, the force with which the earth attracts the object also becomes twice.
  4. Thus, the object becomes twice as heavier, making it harder to be pulled along the floor.
