 Be the first pioneers to continue the Astronomy Discussions at our new Astronomy meeting place...The Space and Astronomy Agora Jumping On The Moon Forum List | Follow Ups | Post Message | Back to Thread TopicsPosted by Steve and Meg on May 22, 2000 15:33:27 UTC

In our science class we concluded that if you were to jump on the earth and then on the moon, that the jump on the moon would be around 9 times as high as the jump on earth. This is if you jump with the same strength and all the other factors are equal. But we also found that the 9 times higher was not equal for everyone, some people would only jump 7 or 8 times as high, or some would jump 10 times as high. Our text book say it should equal 9, our teacher sent us online to ask others why that is not true for everyone. Thanx for any info you have!
