    weight is the force of gravity acting on a mass. so\[F=ma\]\[F=(50kg)*\left(10.5\frac{m}{s^2}\right)\]which is 525 N

    you dont even need the equations for that. if the accelleration due to gravity is greater than earth, we already know that the the answer must be greater than 500N, the first 3 are ridiculously low leveing you wiht the last answer.
