If your mass for example is 10 kg then your weight is 98 newton as the weight=mass *gravity ; weight=mass*9.8 , other example if you went to the moon your mass won`t change but your weight will as gravity changed.

What are a pound a kilo and a ounce measurements for?
They are all measurements of weight or mass.
Asked in Units of Measure, Weight and Mass
Why is mass not always measured by weight?
Because mass and weight refer to two different measurements. The mass of an object relates to quantity and never changes where as the weight of an object is based on gravitational force and can therefore change with the forces acting upon it. ...
Asked in Science
Which of the following measurements is needed to find density?
Volume & mass (weight).
Asked in Physics, Weight and Mass
Which will be different on the moon mass or weight?
The weight will be different.
What are the similarities of the English system of measurements and metric system?
Both systems have measurements for distance, area, volume, and mass or weight. ...
Asked in Math and Arithmetic, Weight and Mass
How is measurment of weight different from measurement of mass?
Mass is the mass, weight is mass with gravity acting upon it
Weight is the same as mass?
No. The same mass (informally: "amount of substance") can have a different weight, depending on the gravity. No. The same mass (informally: "amount of substance") can have a different weight, depending on the gravity. No. The same mass (informally: "amount of substance") can have a different weight, depending on the gravity. No. The same mass (informally: "amount of substance") can have a different weight, depending on the gravity. ...
Why is your weight on earth different from out mass on the moon?
You can't compare WEIGHT with MASS - those two are used to measure quite different things. It doesn't make sense to say that they are the same, or that they are different. You can only compare mass with mass, or weight with weight. ...
Asked in Math and Arithmetic
What are four different measurements and what do they measure?
In metric system there are: Meters->distance or length Grams->mass Liters->volume Newtons->weight or pull of gravity or force ...
Asked in Units of Measure, Physics, Chemistry
The weight of a substance is defined as its mass divided by its volume?
weight is different in different gavities but mass is not, volume is not involved ...
Asked in Weight and Mass
Are weight and mass same thing?
Weight and mass are not the same thing. While weight referrers to the force applied by gravity over an object in relation to its mass and is measured in Newtons, mass is measured in Kilograms. The relation between these two measurements is: 1kg = 9'8N ...
Asked in Physics, The Difference Between
What is different about weight and mass measurement?
The difference between weight, OK say that your on the moon your weight is the same that it was on earth but your mass will be totally different then it was on earth. ...
