# A body weighing 2 kg, lying on the surface of the Moon, is subjected to a gravity

**A body weighing 2 kg, lying on the surface of the Moon, is subjected to a gravity force equal in modulus to 3.32 N. Determine the modulus of gravitational acceleration for the Moon.**

Given:

m = 2 kg;

F = 3.32 N.

Find: g. Let us designate the acceleration of gravity on the Moon as g.

Decision:

In order to solve the problem, it is necessary to apply the formula for finding the force of gravity. It looks like this: F gravity = m * g.

Since we need to find the acceleration of gravity, we will express it from the formula. Then we get: g = F gravity / m.

We know all the variables from the condition, so we can substitute them into the formula and find the answer.

g = 3.32 / 2.

We carry out the last calculation and get the answer.

g = 1.66 m / s ^ 2.

Answer: 1.66 m / s ^ 2
