Gunter, the weightlifter, can lift a 230.0 kg barbell overhead on Earth. The acceleration due to gravity on the sun is 274 m/s^2. What is the weight of the barbell on the sun (if he was safe from the heat)? How much force does each arm carry?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Ok, I was totally wrong previously.... 1 kg on earth is 1 kg on the sun.... The barbells mass is 230 kg.... Its weight is 230*274 Newtons The force through the guys arm (assuming 1 arm and only vertical forces) is 230*274/2 Newtons
