What will be the weight of an object of 5kg on the moon

Your weight on the moon is a function of the moon's gravity. First, we know that gravity is a force that attracts all physical objects towards each other (but why this happens is largely unknown!). Second, the greater the mass of an object, the stronger the force of gravity.
Mass and weight are different. Mass is the measure of how much matter an object has. Weight depends on mass and the value of gravity. The units of mass and weight are also different. In SI units1, mass is measured in kilograms (kilograms is abbreviated kg) and weight is measured in newtons. In mathematical terms,
