Why is the weight of an object on the moon 1/6th its weight on the earth?

Asked by Vishal kumar | 1 year ago |  199

##### Solution :-

The moon's mass is 1/100 times and 1/4 times the earth's radius. As a result, when compared to earth, the gravitational attraction on the moon is about one sixth. Thus, an object's weight on the moon is 1/6th its earth weight.
