Weight on Uranus Calculator
How Much Would You Or Any Object Weigh On Uranus?
This Weight on Uranus Conversion Calculator calculates your weight or the weight that any object would be if on Uranus.
To use this calculator, a user just enters his or her weight or the object's weight and clicks the 'Calculate' button, and the weight will automatically be computed and shown below. The weight can be entered in any units and the resultant answer will be in the same units which the user has input. Thus, for example, if a user enters 120lbs, the resultant answer of the weight in Uranus would be 106.3lbs. The units will always match. Just for the sake of clarity, a user can select the units he wants the answer to appear in, whether grams, kilograms, or pounds, and that unit will show in the answer.
This calculator calculates the weight on Uranus from the weight of the object on Earth. Being that it takes the weight of an object on Earth and converts it to the weight on Uranus, the formula is Weight on Uranus= (Weight on Earth/9.81m/s2) * 8.69m/s2. To find the weight on Uranus, we divide the weight on Earth by the Earth's force of gravity, which is 9.81m/s2. This calculates the mass of the object. Once we have the object's mass, we can find the weight by multiplying it by the gravitational force, which it is subject to. Being that Uranus has a gravitational force of 8.69m/s2, we multiply the object's mass by this quanitity to calculate an object's weight on Uranus.
So an object or person on Uranus would weigh 88.6% its weight on earth. Therefore, a person would be lighter on Uranus. Conversely, a person is 12.4% heavier on earth than on Uranus.
What causes the differences in weight between the various planets? The answer is the gravitational force which a planet is subject to. Even though Uranus has more mass than the Earth. It is 14 times the mass than that of the earth, it has an extremely low density. It is the second least dense planet in the solar system. Therefore, the sun pulls on it with lesser force than the Earth, because of the much lesser density. 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. Being that the earth has greater gravitational force, it pulls object downward with greater force. This translates into greater weight.
