Mass and Weight

Mass is measured in kilograms/kg

When a mass is placed next to another masst this is a  force of attraction between them which is gravity.


The weight of the object is measured in Newton’s/N

The effect around the earth where this graviotional force can be felt is called gravitational feild.

An experiment to measure the weight of mass in the lab = use a balance to measure mass and Newton meter to
