Name ____________________________________ Texas High School IPC, Period ______ Teacher _________________________ Date ___________ Worksheet: Weight = mass X gravity Weight is a measure of the _________________________ force between the object and the earth. The acceleration of gravity on Earth is ___________________. Weight is measured in units of _______________. If one object has more mass than another then it weighs ( more / less ) than the other object. As an astronaut goes to the moon, his mass ____________________________ but his weight __________________________. This is because as he got further away from the Earth, the acceleration of gravity ____________________. Part 1: Weight Problems 1. Force (F) = ? 2. Force (F) = 490N Mass (m) = 75 kg Mass (m) = ? Gravity (g) = 9.8 m/s/s Gravity (g) = 9.8 m/s/s Formula: _________________________ Formula:__________________________ Substitution: ______________________ Substitution: ______________________ Answer: __________________________ Answer: __________________________ 3. What is the force on a 1 kg ball that is falling freely due to the pull of gravity? Force (F) = ________________________ Formula: _________________________ Mass (m) = ________________________ Substitution: ______________________ Gravity (g) = _______________________ Answer: __________________________ 4.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
