Q

If your mass is 60 kg on earth, what would your mass be on the moon?

A

The moon has a lower gravitational pull than that of the earth. It is approximated that gravitational pull on the moon is 1/6th of the earth’s gravitational pull. In that case, people will weigh less on the moon, basically, 1/6th of their mass.

Therefore, you would weigh (1/6 x 60) = 10kg on the moon if your mass is 60kg on earth.
