What is the weight of a 178-kilogram body in newtons? Consider the acceleration due to gravity to be 𝑔 equals 9.8 metres per second squared.

The weight of any body in newtons can be calculated by multiplying the mass by the acceleration due to gravity. In this case, we need to multiply 178 by 9.8. This is equal to 1744.4.

The weight of a 178-kilogram body in newtons is 1744.4.
