# How are weight and mass affected by gravity?

###### Wiki User

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

Mass is not affected by gravity.

Weight is the product of (mass) x (gravity), so it does depend on the local gravity in the place where the mass is located.

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

Though weight is effected by gravity, mass is not affected by gravity.Actually mass is affected by gravity. Although the amount of mass is not affected by gravity, mass itself is.

Mass isn't affected by gravity, but weight directly depends on it.

Density is not affected by gravity. Density is affected by mass and volume, such that density = mass/volume. Weight, but not mass, is affected by gravity. Weight and mass are not the same thing.

No. But the weight of that mass depends on the local gravity.

mass is the amount of matter that something has, not affected by gravity. Gravity is a force or traction. Lastly weight is the force of gravity pulling on an object or a mass

The property of matter that is not affected by gravity is mass. An object has the same mass regardless of the force of gravity, however it's weight can vary. Weight is the force of gravity acting on the mass of an object.

No. Newtons are a measurement of mass and are relative only to Earth's gravity and are not affected by changes in gravity. Only weight is affected by changing gravity. On Earth, weight and mass are the same because Earth's gravity is the benchmark constant for measuring mass in Newtons, and weight is affected by that very same factor (Earth's gravity). On other planets, mass is unchanged because the Earthly gravity is a constant (and therefore, unchanged), and the weight changes because now it is affected by a new planetary gravity.

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

Gravity. Mass is totally different and won't be affected by a planet's gravity.

mass is the amount of matter in an object. mass remains unaffected by gravity. weight is a measure of a gravitational pull on n object and is there for affected by gravity.

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

For example, the same object (with the same mass) will be affected differently by Earth's gravity, and by the lesser gravity on the Moon (i.e., its weight will change).

Mass is the amount of matter in an object. Mass remains unaffected by gravity. Weight is a measure of the gravitational pull on an object and is therefore affected by gravity.

Mass is not affected by gravity, so it would have the same mass. Weight, on the other hand, is affected by gravity, and would double when on the planet as compared to when it is on Earth (w=mg, where w=weight, m=mass, g=gravitational acceleration also called strength of gravity)

No. Mass is the amount of material in your body. Your weight is determined by gravity, and will increase as gravity increases, but the actual mass of your body is not affected by gravity.

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

A rock's mass is not affected by the moon. It's weight is a function of mass and gravity. So, the same rock would weigh more on Earth than on the Moon, as the Earth's gravity is greater. In order to effectively confuse the issue, I should point out that gravity is also a function of mass...

Mass and weight are two separate things. Mass is how much an object contains. Weight is how the mass is affected by gravity. To answer your question, no, it would not.
