Weight and Mass

What affects weight that does not affect mass?


Wiki User

Weight is equal to mass times gravity, so you can change gravity and the mass would not be affected. You can change gravity by leaving Earth, or by having additional G forces applied to you, such as when you speedily whip around a corner in your car.

There is no other way to change your weight besides changing gravity without affecting mass, as those are the only two variables used when solving for gravity.
