# Weight on the Moon Calculator

Your weight is a measure of the amount of gravity exerted on your body by the planet Earth. On planet Earth, gravity has a value of 9.81 N/Kg (Newtons per kilogram). Because the Moon has about one-sixth of the gravity that Earth does, you would weigh less standing on it. On the Moon, gravity has a value of 1.622 N/Kg.

We can hence use the following formula to calculate your weight on the Moon:

For this challenge, we will write a short Python program, based on the Input / Process / Output model. Our program will:

1. INPUT:
Ask the user to input their weight in kg and store this value in a variable called weightOnEarth.
2. PROCESS:
Apply the formula to calculate the equivalent lunar weight and store it in a variable called weightOnMoon.
3. OUTPUT:
Display the weight on the Moon on screen.

#### Python Code

Complete the above code to calculate and output the weight of the end-user on all of the following planets:

 Planet / Celestial Body Gravity (in N/Kg) Moon 1.622 Mercury 3.7 Venus 8.87 Mars 3.711 Jupiter 24.79 Saturn 10.44 Uranus 8.69 Neptune 11.15
