How much stronger is Earth’s gravity compared to Mars and the Moon?

The moon exerts a gravitational force with an intensity equal to 1/6 of that of the earth.

Gravity on Mars is about two times stronger than moon’s one, thus equal to 1/3 of Earth’s gravitational pull.

To make things less abstract, just look at the image below. On the left is shown the height reached from a child thrown by a person on earth.

Considering that the father always throws the kid with the same amount of force, and that the mass of the child does not vary…
