You will be lighter on the moon than on earth because the gravitational pull is different on the moon than on earth. That gravitational pull difference will make the weight different. A 100 lb person will weigh about 16 lbs on the moon.

What is the shape of the sun moon and earth


They are all globes. This is the necessary shape of any large body like that. The earth is slightly flattened at the poles and bulges at the equator, because it is spinning.

What causes the full moon?


The moon would be almost invisible to us if it wasn't illuminated by the sun. When the moon is full the sun isn't impeded by any shadow cast by the Earth. At other times the Earth casts a shadow across the moon starting at one edge and advancing until it is dark and then the shadow retreats until the moon is again full.

Explain the difference between "mass" and "weight" . if a NQ drill rod has a mass of 7,6kg per meter, what is the weight of a 3 meter NQdrill rod?


If the rod has a mass of 7,6kg/m then 3m of it will mass 22.8kg.

Mass it the amount of matter. Weight is the force exerted by the mass in a gravitational field. If you have an object massing 22.8kg, the mass of it will be 22.8kg whether you're on Earth, the Moon, or in outer space. It will weigh 22.8kg at the surface of the Earth, about 4kg on the Moon, and nothing (weightless) in outer space.

Does the dark moon rise on the south side of the bay


No, sorry. The mean inclination of the lunar orbit relative to the ecliptic plane is merely 5.145 degrees. Just like the sun it rises in general eastern direction and sets in western direction, it will not touch the horizon in the south or north of any location on earth.

This result is independent of the moon phase which is solely determined by sun, moon and earth's relative positioning. The dark (or new moon) is simply not illuminated by the sun on the section visible from earth but still rises in the east.

Why is moon not full all the time in the night sky


The sun lights up half of the moon. Depending on where the moon is in its orbit around the earth, we see anywhere from all of the lit half (full moon) to none of it (new moon).

How does the moon affect earth


The moon is larger than moons of other planets and helps slow the earth to have 24 hours days that we know. It gives us the tides. It protects earth from asteroids or other dangers
