How does the force of gravity on Jupiter compare to the force of gravity on Earth?


Your mass is the same everywhere, but your weight will change from planet to planet.

 Jupiter is almost 1,000 times heavier than the Earth.  This means that it will exert a gravitational force much stronger than that of the Earth: if you weigh 100 pounds on Earth, you'll weight 234 on Jupiter.
