Weight is mass times the acceleration of gravity. If an individual weighs 162 pounds on Earth, how much will they weigh on Mercury? Assume the acceleration of gravity on Mercury is 0.38 times the acceleration of gravity on Earth?

Weight on Mercury = [Weight on Earth] / 9.81 m/s^2] x 3.7 m/s^2 =162/9.81 x 3.7 =61.10 pounds.
