### What is the mass of an adult cat?

An adult cat weighs about 10 to 12 pounds. Weight is a force,
rather than a mass; so in order to find his mass we would have to
change units. In the FPS system there is no convenient unit of
mass, so the simplest way to determine this is to convert to
kilograms, which are a mass unit. An object that weighs 11 pounds
on Earth's surface has a mass of 5 kilograms.

### How does the law of universal gravitation explain why gravity between an elephant and earth is greater than gravity between a cat and earth?

The law of gravity says the force experienced is proportional to
the product of the two masses and inversely proportional to the
square of the distance between them.
Effectively on earth the measurement of the force of gravity on
a mass is the weight of the mass.
As an Elephant has more mass than a Cat, it weighs more than the
Cat (because the mass of the Earth is constant).

Mass and volume are different notions and the units are not
compatible. You need to know the density of the material to
evaluate the mass because: mass = volume x density.
Also many types of cups exist through the damned non-SI units
