# What two things determine the weight of an object?

###### Wiki User

Weight is determined by the object's mass and the force of gravity acting upon the object.

Two factors that determine the strength of friction between two objects is the smoothness of the surfaces in contact, and the weight of the object moving horizontally.

Increasing the weight of the object and the smoothness of the surface the object is on (the less smooth the more friction)

PEgravitational = mass * gravity * height. Mass * gravity = weight Therefore the two factors are weight and height.

1. weight 2. and how far apart it is with another object

#1 -- the density of the particular object #2 -- the density of the particular fluid

To determine average speed, you need to know what distance the object traveled in meters over how long it took the object to travel that distance in seconds.

The density of the object and the density of the fluid you drop it into. Buoyancy and pressure determine whether the object floats or sinks.

Speed is the rate at which an object moves. To determine the rate at which that object moves, we'll have to look at a given distance that it covered when it moved, and at the time it took to cover that distance. The distance per unit of time is the speed of the object.

Mass and weight are two separate things. Mass is how much an object contains. Weight is how the mass is affected by gravity. To answer your question, no, it would not.

mass and square of velocity are the two factors to determine kinetic energy.

The weight of an object depends on two things:The objects massThe gravitational pull acting on the objectSo an object with a mass of 50 kg will weigh less on the Moon than on Earth because the Moon's gravity is one sixth that of the Earth's.

the two things that determine the color of a light wave are its wavelength and the material it reflects from.

you have to look at a given distances that it covered when it moved , and at the time it took to cover that distance

For the object to sink, the buoyant force has to be less than the weight. If the two forces are exactly equal, the object had neutral buoyancy.

v=s/t v: velocity s: distance t: time the velocity of an object is determined by the distance the object covered divided by the time it took the object to cover the whole distance.

the direction and speed of the object are the two things u need 2 know

It is because the object needs to measure according to its matter. Object also has its significant figure that is capable only to the measurement that is fit to it.

Gravitational "force" acts between two objects. Each object "feels" the same force pulling it toward the other object. You and the earth are pulled toward each other, by a force that's called your "weight". Your weight on earth is the same as earth's weight on you. If there is only one object in the whole universe, and no other object exists, then the object that exists has no weight, because there is no gravitational force between two objects. But if there are two or more objects in the universe, then every two of them are attracted to each other, and the force between any two objects is called the "weight" of each object on the other one. That's as plain as I can make it. Can anyone hear me out there ?

W = M X a, where W = weight, M = mass, and a = the acceleration due to gravity. So for your problem, you want the gravitation force as well. On the Moon, you would weigh about 1/6 of your weight on Earth.
