Mass vs. Weight
Mass & Weight are NOT the same
Mass –  amount of “stuff” (matter) in the object
Weight  – size of gravitational force acting on the object

Mass Vs Weight 4

  1. 1. Mass vs. Weight
  2. 2. Mass & Weight are NOT the same
  3. 3. Mass – amount of “stuff” (matter) in the object
  4. 4. Weight – size of gravitational force acting on the object
  5. 5. Mass Weight <ul><li>is measured in kilograms </li></ul><ul><li>always remains the same </li></ul><ul><li>is closely related to inertia </li></ul><ul><li>can NOT be measured directly </li></ul><ul><li>is measured in Newtons </li></ul><ul><li>can change with location </li></ul><ul><li>is closely related to gravity </li></ul><ul><li>can be measured directly using a scale </li></ul>
  6. 6. Relationship between Mass & Weight <ul><li>Weight = mass x g </li></ul><ul><li>(near the surface of Earth g = 9.81 m/s 2 ) </li></ul><ul><li>Near the surface of Earth your weight is 10 times larger than your mass. </li></ul>
