Answer to Question #17579 in Mechanics | Relativity for Paulo

Question #17579
An African Elephant can reach heights of 13 feet and possess a mass of as much as 6000kg. Determine the weight of an African Elephant in Newtons and in pounds. (Given:1.00N = .225 pounds)

This is a Newtons Law Problem.
Expert's answer
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].
