  • weight= mass x free-fall accleration w= mg
  • Hi, my name is Mary Kathryn Stanford, I'm in 5th period and I am going to be teaching you about Weight & Mass.
  • The force on an object due to gravity is called weight. On Earth, your weight is simply the amount of gravitational force exerted on you by the Earth.
  • The free-fall acceleration near a massive object is a constant acceleration that all masses near that object experience. Thus, weight is equal to mass times free-fall acceleration.
  • Let's do some quick math! Weight is measured in newtons and this is the equation.
  • Weight is the gravitational force that an object experiences because of its mass.
  • Mass is a measure of the amount of matter in an object.
