Hey Mom! How much do I weigh on the Moon?



Calculate what you would weigh on the Moon

Materials:

  • Bathroom scales

  • Calculator

Steps:

1. Weigh yourself on your bathroom scales (pounds).

2. Write down weight on Earth

3. Divide you weight by six because the strength of gravity on the Moon is about one-sixth of that on Earth.

4. Write down what you would weigh on the Moon.

5. Compare results


Example:

If I weighed myself and my weight was 180, I would do the following calculations:

180/6 = 30

So, my weight on the Moon would be 30lbs.

Fun Fact: In 1969 Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin were the first people to ever walk on the Moon. This was eight years after Yuri Gagarin made the first human space flight.
