Weight of the 120kg mass object on the moon It is a fact that the gravity on the Moon is (1/6)th that on the Earth. Assuming g ≈ 10 m/s² on the earth. W = m*(g moon) =  120 * (10/6) = 200N. Weight on moon = 200N. The object would weigh approximately 200N on the moon.. The force of gravity acting on the object on the moon is the same as the weight of the object on the moon.  We can't find our answer from your options. Regards
