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.
