|Quoting FredT (Reply 49):|
It is in fact easier balancing an egg on a nail if the gravitational acceleration is smaller. The egg will accelerate less rapidly once it starts tipping, giving you more time to react and stop it from falling off the nail.
Completely theoretical of course, when going from 9.81 m/s^2 to 9.83 m/s^2, but if you were to try it on the Moon you'd find it a lot easier.
I meant "in practice" but yes you are right again.
