What is the weight, in pounds, of a 245-kg object on Jupiter?
Express the weight numerically in pounds.
Kilograms are a measure of mass only, but pounds can measure either mass or weight:
0.454 kg = 1 lb = 1 lb (weight on Earth)
Once you know the weight of an object on Earth, you can use the relative force of gravity (given in the table above Part A) to find the weight of that object on other planets. For example:
1 lb (weight on Earth) = 2.36 lb ( weight in Jupiter)
