maybe air or gas i think for weight......

: Actually, the above have weight and mass, if they are on or about Earth. Anything that is matter will always have mass. It may have no weight if it is in free fall.

Light, or photons, have no mass. One may say - very carefully - that you could consider they have "weight" at times, if one is applying that term to the phenomena of gravity affecting those photons. Wiki User

### Why is the mass of an object the same on the moon as it is on earth but the objects weight is different?

That is because Earth has more gravity. Weight = mass x gravity.

### How is an objects mass measured?

the amount of matter that an object contain the more mass an object has the greater its weight

### What is weight of moon?

For astronomical objects, it is more appropriate to talk about the mass of an object, not about its weight. The Moon has a mass of 7.35 x 1022 kilogram, that is about 1.2% of Earth's mass.

### How much mass is in an object?

Some objects have more mass, some have less.Some objects have more mass, some have less.Some objects have more mass, some have less.Some objects have more mass, some have less.

### Could the mass of a lighter object be more than that of a heavier object?

No, unless you compare objects on different planets. Weight = mass x gravity, so if gravity remains constant, more mass means more weight.

### Why do objects with more mass have greater weight?

weight is the effect of gravity acting on mass,the greater the mass the greater the effect on gravity will have on it therefore the greater the weight. eg. if the mass is 50kg and gravity is 10N the the weight is 500N,if the mass increases to 100kg the the weight would increase to 1000N

### What does mass mean in the metric system?

Weight Technically mass is a body's resistance to acceleration. That means that the greater the mass of a body, the greater the force needed to start or stop it moving. In everyday language mass is referred to as weight, but weight is the force acting on a body, due to gravity normally, and is measured in newtons, mass is measured in kilograms.

### Why do objects with more have greater weight?

weight is the effect of gravity acting on mass,the greater the mass the greater the effect on gravity will have on it therefore the greater the weight. eg. if the mass is 50kg and gravity is 10N the the weight is 500N,if the mass increases to 100kg the the weight would increase to 1000N

more = greater

### What would happen to your mass and weight when you go to moon?

Anything is about 17 percent its Earth weight if on the moon. For example, if 60 pounds on Earth, it is 10 pounds on the moon. Mass of two objects that are near each other causes weight, so the bigger the objects, the more the force of gravity.

more = greater

### If you have two equally sized objects how could you tell which one is more dense?

Compare their weights on scale's have to select scales depending on the size of the objects to find a objects density divide the objects mass by its volume.
