Theweight of a body, however, depends upon the local acceleration of gravity. Thus, the weight of anobject is less on the moon than on the earth because the local acceleration of gravity is less on themoon than on the earth.Example:Calculate the weight of a person with a mass of 185 lbm.Example:Calculate the weight of a person with a mass of 185 lbm on the moon. Gravity onthe moon is 5.36 ft/sec .^{2}
