Introduction This lab is meant to show how the weight of a person can be different in different planets. The mass of a person will stay constant from planet to planet but the weight is the only one that changes. It is often misunderstood and thought that both mass and weight is the same thing. In this experiment I will show they are two separate things, but are related to each other. Experimental Methods I will be calculating the escape velocity of each of the planets; I will also be transforming it to miles per second. I will also find out the weight that I would have in every planet. Results Planet Factor The weight Mercury 0.38 67.64 Venus 0.91 161.98 Mars 0.38 67.64 Jupiter 2.36 420.08 Saturn 0.91 161.98 Uranus 0.89 158.42 Neptune 1.12 199.36 Earth 1 178 Planet Mass Radius(m) Vesc (m/s)
