Massvs Weight 1

  1. 1. Mass <ul><li>Mass is the amount of matter that is contained by the object </li></ul><ul><li>Mass is the amount of “stuff” there is </li></ul><ul><li>Mass does not change based on location, speed, or pull of gravity </li></ul>
  2. 2. Weight <ul><li>Is equal to the force of gravity on an object </li></ul><ul><li>The weight of a person is based on their mass </li></ul><ul><li>Weight is based on the forces being exerted by a planet and the distance the object is from the planet </li></ul>
  3. 3. Mass vs. Weight <ul><li>Mass is measured in kilograms </li></ul><ul><li>Mass of the object remains the same </li></ul><ul><li>Weight is measured in Newtons </li></ul><ul><li>Weight of the object can change if the object’s location in planets gravitational field changes </li></ul><ul><li>Weight is based on the forces being exerted by a planet </li></ul><ul><li>Weight is a force </li></ul>
  4. 4. Conversions for mass Your weight on the moon is 1/6 your weight on the earth Kg 7.35E+22 (Mm) Moon mass Kg 5.98x10 +24 (Me) Earth Mass Nt-m2/kg2 6.67x10 -11 (G) Gravitational Constant
