# Difference in mass and weight?

###### Wiki User

mass is the actual ''density'' of an object. whereas weight is determined by gravity and mass w=m*g

hope this helps

please describe the difference between atomic weight and mass

Numerical difference=m-mg mass is independent of gravitational pull but weight doesnt

The mass is 64.44 grams. But the difference between mass and weight is that mass is weight is how heavy it is on the planet you weigh it on and mass it the weight it is on Earth, whether is is on Earth, or not.

The Difference:Mass - is the amount of matter in an objectWeight - the magnitude of gravitational force acting on an objectHow they are measured:Mass - balanceWeight - scaleUnit of measurement:Mass - grams (g) and kilograms (kg)Weight - newtons (N)

No, it is a measure of weight, there is a difference (Mass is mass, weight is the force exerted by your mass being pulled down by gravity)

The absolute weight (mass) is the mass measured in air, on a balance, on the Earth. The relative weight (mass) is the mass of an object on an another planet or cosmic object.

Weight = mass x gravitational field strength. W=mg On Earth, g=9.8N/kg On Mercury, g=3.8N/kg Thefore the difference in weight will be the objects mass x (9.8-3.8) = 6 x the objects mass. Weight difference = 6m

Mass is the space an object takes up. Weight is the amount of gravity that is pulling you down.

mass is constant. weight is a measure of the force of gravity on an items mass, which can change based on elevation, or for astronauts, when they are in space.

Mass is a measure of the amount of matter in an object. Weight is the effect of the force of gravity on the mass of an object.

I do not know the answer.The difference between mass and capacity is that capacity is how much something can hold and mass is the weight of an object.

Mass is the amount of matter in an object; weight is the gravitational force exerted on an object.

Mass- the amount of matter that something is made of Weight- a measure of the gravitational force exerted on an object

- Weight the water with the container.- Empty the container and weight.- Calculate the difference for the water mass..

The difference between weight, OK say that your on the moon your weight is the same that it was on earth but your mass will be totally different then it was on earth.

Unit of measurement:Mass - grams (g) and kilograms (kg)Weight - newtons (N)

An object's mass is the amount of matter it contains; an object's weight is the effect gravity has on that object.
