Q:

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

A:

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.
