Asked by JeetunBeing that Venus has a gravitational force of 8.87m/s2, we multiply the object's mass by this quanitity to calculate an object's weight on Venus. So an object or person on Venus would weigh 90.42% its weight on earth. We can find the weight of the object on the Earth as follows: W_E=mg_E=\dfrac{GM_Em}{R^2}.W E =mg E = R 2 GM E m . Then, the weight of the object on the Venus will be: W_V=mg_V=\dfrac{GM_Vm}{R^2}=\dfrac{G0.8M_Em}{R^2}=0.8W_E.W V =mg V = R 2 GM V m = R 2 G0.8M E m =0.8W E .
