IF A THE ACCELERATION DUE TO GRAVITY IS 13.2FT/S^2 ON THE SURFACE OF MARS AND 32.2 FT/S^2 ON THE SURFACE OF THE EARTH. WHAT WOULD BE THE WEIGHS OF A 125 POUNDS ON EARTH AND ON MARS?

You are a bit off on the acceleration of gravity.

But, using your numbers,
13.2 / 32.2 = 0.41
0.41 * 125 = 51.25
You would weigh 51.25 pounds on mars.

But my notes show acceleration of gravity on Earth is 32.14 ft/sec/sec and on mars 12.54 ft/sec/sec
12.54 / 32.14 = 0.39
0.39 * 125 = 48.75
You would weight 48.75 pounds on mars

For those of you interested, I added a page in the Fun Stuff section which can show your weight on other planets.

The data came from [url]http://www.nineplanets.org[/url] which is a great site if you are looking for information on our solar system.
