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

Calculate what you would weigh on the Moon


  • Bathroom scales

  • Calculator


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


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.
