### Why is the force of gravity also an acceleration?

Gravity does not exactly have units of force - it can be
expressed as Newton / kilogram - each kilogram is attracted by a
certain force. But Newton / kilogram is not the same as
Newton.
Newton / kilogram has the same units as meters / second
square.
Another way to look at this is that gravity gives a certain
acceleration to any falling object.

### What force is weight measured in?

A weight is a force, and the correct SI unit to measure it is
the Newton. To get an idea of its magnitude, with normal Earth
gravity, a mass of 1 kilogram has a weight of approximately 9.8
Newton.

### How many newtons is Gravity?

9.8 newtons/kilogram. In other words, an object with a mass of 1
kilogram will weigh 9.8 newtons, an object with twice that mass
will have twice the weight, etc.
The force of gravity is often expressed as an acceleration - 9.8
meters/second2. This is equivalent to newtons/kilogram.

### What is the mass of an object if the force of gravity acting on its mass is 1033 Newtons?

If we have a force acting on a body and we know what that force
is, and we also know that the force is gravity, we can solve
because we know the force gravity exerts on a mass. If we take the
total force acting on the body and divide it by the force of
gravity per one unit of mass, we can find the number of units of
mass that cause gravity to act on the object. We have 1033 Newtons
of force acting on the object. Gravity pulls down with a force of
9.8 Newtons on 1 kilogram of mass. Our 1033 Newtons divided by 9.8
Newtons per kilogram = 105.41 kilograms

### What is the surface gravity on the moon in newtons?

'Newton' is a unit of force. You can't measure gravity in units
of force,
because we have all noticed that fat people weigh more than thin
ones
even when they are all on the same planet.
-- The surface gravity on Earth is 9.81 newtons per
kilogram of mass.
-- The surface gravity on the moon is 1.62 newtons per
kilogram of mass.
(1 newton per kilogram of mass) is the same thing as (1 meter
per second2).
That's an acceleration, which is the kind of unit to
describe gravity with.

### How much force due to gravity is acting on one kilogram of mass on the surface of the earth?

The earth's gravity varies a bit from the equator to the poles
and also from sea level to altitude. Fortunately we have a
definition for "standard gravity" on earth, and it's 9.80665 m/s²
(32.1740 ft/s²). We'll need that, and we'll need to figure out and
define force so we can measure it. Force due to gravity is the
"pull" of gravity, and it is the attraction of the mass of the
earth for this other mass that weighs 1 kilogram. There is a simple
equation used to measure force: Force (F) = mass (m) times
acceleration (a) For force supplied by gravity, we use the
gravitational constant (g) for the acceleration. F = m times
g We know the gravitational constant, so we'll just plug it
in. And we'll simply plug in the mass you asked about, which is 1
kilogram, to come up with this: F = 1 kg times 9.8 m/s2 That means
you've got 9.8 kilogram meters per second2 for your force. Force is
measured in Newtons, and a Newton is 1 kilogram meter per second 2
so if you have 9.8 kg meters / second2 then you have 9.8
Newtons acting on your 1 kg mass.
