# How much would a 70kg person weigh on Mercury?

Because Mercury has a gravitational force of 8.87m/s2, we multiply the object's mass by this value to get the weight of an object on Mercury. As a result, an object or person on Mercury would weigh 37.72 percent of what it would weigh on Earth. As a result, a human on Mercury would be lighter than on Earth. But he or she would still weigh more than a mouse on Earth.

The human body is made up of three main types of tissue: muscle, fat, and bone. Each type of tissue has its own strength and weakness regarding gravity. Muscle is used for moving bones, which are heavier than muscles. Fat is heavy compared to muscle, but it spreads out into layers that cushion people from the pressure of earth's gravity. Bone is very dense and supports most of a human being's weight. It is mostly made up of calcium carbonate, with some other materials included such as iron and phosphorus.

On Earth, the average person weighs about 60 kg (130 lb). If we were to lift this average person onto Mercury, their weight would be about 740 mg or 3% of the average person's weight on Earth. This means that a person on Mercury would be lighter than a normal person on Earth but still would bear considerable weight.

In terms of size, the average person on Mercury would be 1.6 m (5 ft 7 in) tall and have a mass of 70 kg (150 lb).

## Do you weigh more or less on Mercury?

Because Mercury has less mass than Earth, its surface gravity is lower than Earth's. Mercury's surface gravity is only roughly 38% that of Earth's, therefore if you weigh 100 pounds on Earth, you would only weigh 38 pounds on Mercury. A person's weight can be increased because there is less pressure available to push outwards against their body.

Mercury is always covered by a thin layer of water which may or may not be frozen. Because the planet has no core, most of its mass is made up of iron and nickel. The density of mercury is 13.5 grams per cubic centimeter, which is slightly less than iron.

The average distance between the planets is about 12 billion miles (19 billion km). So for every million miles traveled, you would experience approximately 1 g of force. On Mercury this would mean that you would weigh about 393 pounds (173 kg).

The reason why people say you look fat in photos taken on Mercury is because it has the same effect as Earth's atmosphere: it makes you appear larger than you actually are. If you were standing on Mercury with nothing between you and its bright sun but a photo of your back, you would appear twice as wide and tall as when viewed from Earth.

It is estimated that 95% of the incoming radiation from the Sun is reflected by Mercury back into space.

## How much would you weigh on Earth if you were 100 pounds?

If you weigh 100 pounds on Earth, you would only weigh 38 pounds on Mercury. Because Mercury weighs less than Earth, its gravity would exert less force on your body. If you were on Jupiter, though, you would weigh a massive 253 pounds! On Jupiter, 1 pound is not like 1 pound is not like any other pound. It's about 2% more than the weight of a pound on Earth.

Here are some other interesting facts about planets:

Earth's mass is estimated to be 5.98 billion tons. The Moon's mass is estimated to be 3.48 billion tons. Mars has a mass of 4.86 billion tons while Uranus and Neptune have masses of 9.5 and 17.3 million tons respectively.

All of the planets except for Mercury are classified as terrestrial planets because they are covered with continents and oceans. Mercury is called a terrestrial planet too but it has no ocean or water vapor in its atmosphere. Instead, it has volcanoes that pour out lava which forms deep craters on the surface.

Jupiter is by far the most massive planet and also the largest one too. It has eight major moons orbiting around it. These include Io, Europa, Ganymede, Callisto, Metis, Dione, Tethys and Titan.

## What is your weight on Neptune?

As a result, an object or person on Neptune would weigh 113.66 percent of what they do on Earth. As a result, a human on Neptune would be heavier than on Earth. On Earth, a human is 85.7 percent lighter than on Neptune. This means that a human on Neptune weighs about 13 times as much as a human on Earth.

Neptune's mass is nearly 10 times that of Earth's so its gravitational pull is also nearly 10 times stronger. Because the strength of gravity decreases proportionally to the square of distance, the effect of Neptune's presence on Earth would be largely unnoticeable.

However, because Neptune has more mass, its gravitational field is more intense. The closer you are to something with greater mass, the more force there is acting upon you. So even though Neptune's influence on Earth is negligible, anyone living near one of Neptune's moons could experience some effects from their planet's larger mass.

Scientists think that during Jupiter's early development, it may have pulled away from Earth gradually until its gravitational force was only 687 percent of Earth's. If this had continued, humans might have died out. But then Jupiter collided with another planet and the force of the collision reversed itself, saving Earth forever. According to this theory, because Neptune's formation process was similar to Jupiter's, it too might have caused Earth initially to suffer under its own strong gravity before finally reaching stability.
