# The spacecraft with which Neil Armstrong and Edwin Eldrin landed on the Moon on July 20

The spacecraft with which Neil Armstrong and Edwin Eldrin landed on the Moon on July 20, 1696 had a mass of 14700 kg, determine the weight of this device on the moon.

Spacecraft weight:

Р = m * g, where m is the mass of the spacecraft (m = 14700 kg), g is the acceleration of gravity.

Free fall acceleration on the lunar surface:

g = G * M / R², where G is the gravitational constant (G = 6.67 * 10 ^ -11 m³ / (kg * s²)), M is the mass of the Moon (M = 7.35 * 10 ^ 22 kg), R is the radius of the moon (R = 1737.1 km = 1737100 m).

P = m * g = m * G * M / R² = 14700 * 6.67 * 10 ^ -11 * 7.35 * 10 ^ 22/17371002 = 23883 N.

Answer: The weight of the spacecraft on the Moon is 23883 N.
