The weight of any person on the moon is about 1/6 times that on the earth. He can lift a mass of 15 kg on the earth. What will be the maximum mass, which can be lifted by the same force applied by the person on the moon?
Force exerted while lifting mass on earth
Fe = mg = 15 g
Using same force, when g becomes g/6 on moon, mass which can be lifted

How does the weight of an object vary with respect to mass and radius of the earth. In a hypothetical case, if the diameter of the earth becomes half of its present value and its mass becomes four times of its present value, then how would the weight of any object on the surface of the earth be affected?NCERT Science - Exemplar
