# Are mass and weight both independent of gravity?

###### Wiki User

No. Mass is independent of gravity, but weight is a function of gravity and mass.

The mass of the object is independent of the rate ot its fall or strictly speaking mass is independent of gravity. Only weight of the object depends upon the gravity.

weight is the force of gravity on an object, and mass is the volume o space it takes up, independent of the gravitational pull.

They're not. Weight is the force produced on a mass by gravity. Volume is totally independent.

Weight = mass x gravityWeight = mass x gravityWeight = mass x gravityWeight = mass x gravity

Weight and inertia are both related to mass. Inertia is the same, whether there is gravity or not. Weight also depends on gravity. If there is no gravity, an object will have no weight, no matter what its mass is.

No. Mass (e.g. grams) is a measure of matter, and is independent of gravity. Weight (e.g. pounds) is a measure of force and is directly related to gravity.

No. Weight is dependent on both mass and gravity (weight= mass x acceleration due to gravity). For example, if you went to the moon you would weigh less because the gravity is weaker, but your mass would be the same.

Since gravity is basically a force then, it is determined by both mass and size. Also weight.

well weight depends on mass and gravity so gravity depends on mass. e.g weight=mass X gravity

Mass can be measured by an object's inertia, and that is independent of gravity. Weight is mass times gravity, in other words, it is dependent on gravity. It is considered a quantity that is quite different from mass, although with standard gravity (as is common on Earth's surface), the two are proportional. Read the Wikipedia article "Mass versus weight" for a more detailed explanation.

No, the mass of an object is independent of where it is. The mass does not change. However, the weight (that is the product of mass and gravity acceleration) changes by change of the gravity. For example, the gravity on the moon is 1/6th that on earth. so, the object weight on the moon is 1/6th the same object weight on earth.

Mass is not affected by gravity. Weight is the result of the force of gravity acting on mass.

No. The relationship is: weight = mass x gravity Mass causes both weight, and inertia. Weight is the force of attraction by gravity, and also depends on the gravitational field, not just on the mass. For more information, check the Wikipedia article "Mass versus weight".

The mass is basically NOT affected by gravity. The weight IS affected, and it is equal to mass x gravity.

Both its mass and the force of gravity acting on it.

Both it's mass and the force of gravity acting on it

Gravity is the cause of weight, but it has no effect on mass.
