With this applet you may observe how weights differ from the surface of one planet to another. In other words, it tells you that if something weighs so much on the surface of one planet, it will weigh these amounts on the surfaces of the other planets.
How Do I Use It?
To use this applet simply enter a weight into the text box under one of the planets and press the button that says "set" directly below the box. The weights underneath all the other planets will automatically change to be in accordance with what you entered.
Things to Try
Underneath Earth enter your weight and press set. What would you weigh on the surface of Jupiter, the Moon or even the Sun?
For those of you who lift weights, enter your maximum for a certain lift but do it in the box under the Moon. Press set and see how much weight that would be here on Earth.
