WEIGHT OF AN OBJECT ON THE MOON
Amit buys few grams of gold at the poles as per the instruction of one of his friends. He hands over the same when he meets him at the equator. Will the friend agree with the weight of gold bought? If not, why? [Hint: The value of g is greater at the poles than at the equator].
Gravitational force on the surface of the moon is only `1/6` as strong as gravitational force on the Earth. What is the weight in newtons of a 10 kg object on the moon and on the Earth?
