# How do you calculate mass and weight?

The mass of a body cannot be mathematically calculated, it has to be determined using apparatus such as the Triple Beam Balance.

Once the mass of an object is known, its weight can be calculated. The weight of an object is the product of its mass and the acceleration due to gravity on the planet.

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. Although mass is not the same as weight, if you know the weight and the gravity, you can calculate the mass. Weight is the product of (mass) multiplied by (the acceleration of gravity on the planet where the mass is)  Mass = weight /gravity Density = Mass / Volume So, if you know the density and the volume, you can calculate the mass. Also, you can measure the mass by measuring the weight. On earth, mass and weight are equal.  Weight = Mass X (acceleration due to gravity), which on Earth is 9.8m/s^2. 10 kilograms is the mass. To calculate the weight (in newtons), multiply the mass by 9.8.  - Weight the water with the container.- Empty the container and weight.- Calculate the difference for the water mass.. density= mass/ volume (if you want the weight then you have to multiply the mass by 9.8, however I am sure that you mean the mass. Mass= kg, Weight= Newtons)  balance your chemical reaction equation then calculate moles, then calculate weight.  Weight is the pull exerted by gravity on a mass. On Earth, as gravity is defined as unity, an objects mass is also its weight. On other planets, this will not be the case. Weight = (mass) x (local acceleration of gravity). Mass = (weight) / (local acceleration of gravity) If you know the weight and the local acceleration of gravity, you can calculate the mass. Anywhere on or near the surface of the earth, the local acceleration of gravity is about 9.82 meters per second2 . As an example, an object with a weight of 9.82 newtons has a mass of one kilogram. Molecular weight is just an older term for molar mass. They are the same. The atomic weight of chemical elements is determined by mass spectrometry. Your weight is your mass x gravity. So, on earth, g = approx 10. So divide mass (in kg) by 10 to get weight (in newtons) Whether or not your weight is healthy is relative to your size. As such finding a Body Mass Index calculator can help you calculate your Body Mass Index and if it's healthy. Mass, and volume? sorry i dont really knwo but i gave it a shot! Weight=m*g m=mass g=acceleration of gravity Mass (times) gravity= weight. Too hard? Use a scale.  You calculate its volume, look up the density of bronze, then multiply volume x density to get mass. Probably that's what you want; if you really want weight, you multiply mass x gravity to get the weight. A spring device can only measure an object's weight. In order to find its mass, you then have to either compare its weight with the weight of a known mass, or else use the value of gravitational acceleration to calculate the mass from the weight.
