# What happens to your weight on Saturn?

## What happens to your weight on Saturn?

The surface gravity on Saturn is about 107% of the surface gravity on Earth, so if you weigh 100 pounds on Earth, you would weigh 107 pounds on Saturn (assuming you could find someplace to, well, stand). If you weigh 100lbs on Earth and 107lbs near Saturn’s poles, you’d weigh closer to 91lbs near Saturn’s equator.

### Why is your weight different on other planets but your mass is the same?

An object’s weight is dependent on its mass and how strongly gravity pulls on it. The strength of gravity depends on how far away one object is from another. That’s why the same object weighs different amounts on different planets. Mass stays the same regardless of location and gravity.

How heavy would I be on Saturn?

5.683 × 10^26 kg (95.16 M⊕)
Saturn/Mass

Does your mass change on different planets?

Our mass is the amount of matter that we consist of. This mass does not change when we change planets. However, if we went from Earth to Mars, our weight would change because Mars has less gravity than Earth. So, a small planet has less and larger planet has more gravity.

## Why is Saturn less dense?

Uranus and Neptune are mostly ice, and Saturn is mostly gas, so it’s less dense. Above Saturn’s mass, the gravity of the planet tends to increase its density, so Jupiter is more dense than Saturn.

### How are weight and mass different?

Mass is a measure of how much force it will take to change that path. Mass depends on how much matter – atoms and so on – there is in an object; more mass means more inertia, as there is more to get moving. Weight, on the other hand, is a measure of the amount of downwards force that gravity exerts on an object.

Does your mass also change on the different planets stars?

Our mass is the amount of matter that we consist of. This mass does not change when we change planets. However, if we went from Earth to Mars, our weight would change because Mars has less gravity than Earth. Stars, moons, and planets all have gravity.

What is the mass of Saturn compared to Earth?

The mean density of Saturn is 0.687 grams per cubic centimeter, making it the only planet in the solar system less dense than water. The mass of the ringed planet is 5.68 x 1026 kilograms, 95 times the mass of Earth.

## How are mass and weight different?

The mass is essentially “how much stuff” is in an object. Weight: There is a gravitational interaction between objects that have mass. If you consider an object interacting with the Earth, this force is called the weight. The unit for weight is the Newton (same as for any other force).

The mass of Saturn is 95 times the mass of Earth. However, Saturn’s gravity is only 1.08 times the gravity on Earth because Saturn is such a large planet. An object weighing 100 lbs on Earth would weigh 108 lbs on Saturn.

### How much would an object or person on Saturn weigh?

Being that Saturn has a gravitational force of 10.44m/s 2, we multiply the object’s mass by this quanitity to calculate an object’s weight on Saturn. So an object or person on Saturn would weigh 106.42% of its weight on earth.

Why does the Sun pull on the Earth more than Saturn?

Earth has less mass than Saturn. Therefore, the sun pulls on the earth with lesser force, because of the lesser mass. You probably are familiar that gravity is a downward force. It pushes you back to the Earth’s surface. This is why when you jump, you come back down.

How would my weight be different on another planet?

For one thing, your weight would be different on another planet, depending on a number of factors including the mass of the planet and how far you are away from the center of the planet. Before we start, it’s important to understand that the kilogram is actually a measurement of your mass.
