The measurement of the planet's weight is derived from the gravitational attraction that the Earth has for objects near it.
To make their measurements, the researchers are using a device called a torsion balance. This records nearly imperceptible accelerations from the gravitational effects of four eight-kilogram stainless steel balls on a gold-coated Pyrex plate about the size of a matchbox but just 1.5 millimetres thick. The device, operating inside an old cyclotron hall in the UW nuclear physics laboratory, is similar to one used 200 years ago to make the first measurement. But it is computer controlled and contains numerous mechanical refinements that make the more precise measurement possible. Hope this helps!
The force F is measured in newtons. The mass is measured in kilograms. Weight is usually measured on Earth, where 1 newton is nearly 0.102 kilogram.
Weight (on Earth) or Mass (everyplace else)
Weight can be measured on a scale.
Weight is measured with a set of scales or a balance, whether electronic or analogue. The weight of an object is different to its mass. The weight is in relation to the gravitational pull so alters at different places in the universe (and earth slightly) so things weigh less on the moon but they have the same mass. Mass is measured in grams etc whereas weight should be measured in Newtons.
In Europe, weight is measured in Kilograms.
Because mass is conserved, which means it stays the same wherever the object goes. The weight is the force that the Earth attracts the object with, which changes when the object goes away from the Earth. Mass is measured by a balance, a pair of scales, where one mass is compared with another. Weight is measured by a spring balance, where the force of attraction by the Earth is measured by how much it extends a spring.
it would be the weight. mass is how much of an object there is, but weight is measured by gravitational pull. If you measure mass on the moon it'd be the same as on earth, but if you measured weight there, it would be much different.
Mass and Weight The gravitational force Earth exerts on an object is the weight of the object. Because weight is a force, it is measured in newtons. Weight is not the same as mass. Mass is the amount of matter an object contains, and is measured in kilograms. Even if the mass of an object doesn't change, its weight will change if its distance from Earth changes
earth is measured by miles and the map is measured by inches.!

No, weight isn't measured in newtons. Force is measured in newtons. Weight is a measure of gravitational force.
because people always are weight on earth. that's the reason is that a person to pay attention to crime.
