19. (a) The gravitational acceleration at the surface of the Moon is g moon = 1.67 m/s 2 (see Appendix C). The ratio of weights (for a given mass) is the ratio of g -values, so W moon = (100 N)(1.67/9.8) = 17 N. (b) For the force on that object caused by Earth’s gravity to equal 17 N, then the free-fall
