Weight is a force. Gravity is an acceleration. Therefore, mass multiplied by gravity gives you weight.

Weight depends on the strength of gravity. Mass is constant.


weight is defined as the product of mass and gravity constant. as the value of gravity changes weight is also changed


If your mass for example is 10 kg then your weight is 98 newton as the weight=mass *gravity ; weight=mass*9.8 , other example if you went to the moon your mass won`t change but your weight will as gravity changed.


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


No, but gravity is a factor in weight. For example, on the moon where gravity is less, your weight feels less, but it hasn't changed as your mass hasn't changed.


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


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


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



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



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


Weight is the effect of gravity upon mass.



Basically by weighing it. Although mass is not the same as weight, if you know the weight and the gravity, you can calculate the mass.Basically by weighing it.

I believe the best way to look at it is: Gravity is what gives something with mass weight. Without gravity the mass has no measurable weight.


Weight = mass x gravity. On Earth, gravity is about 9.8 newtons per kilogram.Weight = mass x gravity. On Earth, gravity is about 9.8 newtons per kilogram.Weight = mass x gravity. On Earth, gravity is about 9.8 newtons per kilogram.Weight = mass x gravity. On Earth, gravity is about 9.8 newtons per kilogram.


w=mg. weight is the product of mass and gravity


Gravity is the cause of the forces that give weight to mass.


Gravity affects weight, it does not affect mass.


your weight can change because of gravity but your mass has nothing to do with gravity it is the amount of matter that is in or makes up an object, just picture this you have a empty folder, it has mass and weight, then you put something in it the weight changes but the mass, or amount of matter that makes up the folder, has not changed


Weight = Mass x Gravity


Weight = mass * gravity


Gravity causes weight. In the absence of gravity a mass of 60kg has no weight.


Gravity affects weight but not mass. Think of mass as the "stuff" an object is made of or the amount of matter it has. That does not change just because the force of gravity changes. However, weight IS affected by changes in gravity. That is why you will weigh about six times less on the moon than you do on Earth. The moon's force of gravity, or acceleration, is about 6.05 times less than Earth's. So, your physical make-up (mass) has not changed but your weight has.
