Question

Suppose you are talking by interplanetary telephone to your friend, who lives on the Moon. He tells you that he has just won a newton of gold in a contest. Excitedly, you tell him that you entered the Earth version of the same contest and also won a newton of gold! Who is richer?

    Answer:

    The friend on moon will be richer.

    Explanation:

    We must calculate the mass of gold won by each person, to tell who is richer. For that purpose we will use the following formula:

    W = mg

    m = W/g

    where,

    m = mass of gold

    W = weight of gold

    g = acceleration due to gravity on that planet

    FOR FRIEND ON MOON:

    W = 1 N

    g = 1.625 m/s²

    Therefore,

    m = (1 N)/(1.625 m/s²)

    m(moon) = 0.6 kg

    FOR ME ON EARTH:

    W = 1 N

    g = 9.8 m/s²

    Therefore,

    m = (1 N)/(9.8 m/s²)

    m(earth) = 0.1 kg

    Since, the mass of gold on moon is greater than the mass of moon on earth.

    Therefore, the friend on moon will be richer.
