Interesting Weight Quiz: Trivia Questions! - Quiz

Interesting weight quiz: trivia questions! Weight is the force exerted to a body by gravity. Do you know that people weigh different when they are on earth when compared to the moon? Do you know that the gravity of the moon is weaker than that on the earth? Do take up the quiz below and see how much you know about the differences and implications to an astronaut. Have fun!


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    An astronaut weighs 700N on earth, what is his weight on the moon?

    • A.

      43.75

    • B.

      50.21

    • C.

      70

    • D.

      116.66

    Correct Answer
    D. 116.66
    Explanation
    The weight of an object is determined by the force of gravity acting on it. The force of gravity on the moon is about 1/6th of the force of gravity on Earth. Therefore, if an astronaut weighs 700N on Earth, his weight on the moon would be 1/6th of that, which is approximately 116.66N.

    What is his mass on earth?

    • A.

      100.00

    • B.

      60.45

    • C.

      71.42

    • D.

      85.50

    Correct Answer
    C. 71.42
    Explanation
    The answer 71.42 is the mass of the person on Earth. Mass is a measure of the amount of matter in an object, and it remains the same regardless of the location. Therefore, the person's mass would be 71.42 on Earth.

    What is his mass on the moon?

    • A.

      71.42

    • B.

      70.65

    • C.

      65.10

    • D.

      53.67

    Correct Answer
    A. 71.42
    Explanation
    The given answer, 71.42, is the correct answer because it is the only option provided that matches the question prompt. The question asks for the person's mass on the moon, and 71.42 is the only value given as a possible answer.

    A dog weighs 18.75N on the moon what does he weigh on Earth?

    • A.

      450.76

    • B.

      375.65

    • C.

      275.60

    • D.

      112.50

    Correct Answer
    D. 112.50
    Explanation
    The weight of an object is determined by the force of gravity acting on it. Since the force of gravity on the moon is about 1/6th of the force on Earth, the weight of the dog on Earth would be 6 times the weight on the moon. Therefore, if the dog weighs 18.75N on the moon, it would weigh 112.50N on Earth.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    The dogs mass changes from earth to the moon.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The mass of an object does not change when it is taken from Earth to the Moon or any other location. Mass is a fundamental property of an object and remains constant regardless of the location or gravitational force acting on it. The weight of an object may change due to the difference in gravitational pull, but not its mass. Therefore, the statement is false.

    An astronaut's shuttle weighs 1,223,260.5N on the moon how much on earth.

    • A.

      1,223,260.5

    • B.

      354,778.1

    • C.

      203,876.8

    • D.

      222,346.7

    Correct Answer
    C. 203,876.8
    Explanation
    The weight of an object is determined by the force of gravity acting on it. Since the force of gravity on the moon is about 1/6th of that on Earth, the weight of the shuttle on Earth would be approximately 1/6th of its weight on the moon. Therefore, the correct answer is 203,876.8N.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    How much does the 100kg astronaut weigh on the moon?

    • A.

      163 N

    • B.

      100 N

    • C.

      53 N

    • D.

      10 N

    Correct Answer
    A. 163 N
    Explanation
    The weight of an object is determined by the force of gravity acting on it. On the moon, the force of gravity is about 1/6th of that on Earth. Therefore, if the astronaut weighs 100kg on Earth, on the moon they would weigh 1/6th of that, which is approximately 16.7kg. To convert this weight to Newtons, we multiply by the acceleration due to gravity on the moon, which is 1.62 m/s^2. Therefore, the weight of the 100kg astronaut on the moon would be approximately 163N.

    What is the mass of a 100kg astronaut on Earth?

    • A.

      980

    • B.

      600

    • C.

      100

    • D.

      50

    Correct Answer
    C. 100
    Explanation
    The mass of an object does not change with location. Therefore, the mass of a 100kg astronaut on Earth would still be 100kg.
