Hi Tomate Supra!

Thanks for your question!

First, let's check what we know and what we can deduce from the statement:

â€¢ The Perseverance robot has a mass of 1025 kg. Its mass on Earth is the same as that on Mars.

Let's check what we are looking for:

â€¢ The weight of Perseverance on Mars

So, to find the answer to the question, we must use the weight formula:

$$ P = m \cdot g $$

Legend:

â€¢ P: weight (N)

â€¢ m: mass ( kg)

â€¢ g: gravitational acceleration constant of the star ( \(m / s ^ 2 \))

We know the value of m. The value of g should probably be given in the question. In this case, the value of the gravitational acceleration constant on Mars is \( 3.72 m / s^2 \).

Thus, we replace the known values â€‹â€‹in the formula:

$$ P = m \cdot g $$

$$ P = 1025kg \cdot 3.72 m/s^2 $$

$$ P = 3813N $$

By doing this, we find the final answer.

Let us know if we can help you with anything else!
