Answer to Question #17579 in Mechanics | Relativity for Paulo
This is a Newtons Law Problem.
If the mass of an elephant is m = 6000 kg, then according to the second Newton's law its weight in Newtons is
W = mg = 6000[kg]*9.8[m/s²] = 58800[N]
and therefore its weight in pounds is
P = 58800[N] * 0.225 = 13230 [pounds].
