Mass and Weight

Mass is the amount of matter in an object and it is measured in kilograms (kg).

Weight is the force of gravity on an object and it is measured in newtons (n).

On Earth, every kilogram of mass is pulled down with a force of 10 N.

weight (n) = mass (kg) x gravitational field strength (n/kg)

w = m x g
