Similarities between Mass and Weight?


There are a few shared similarities between mass and weight. They are both measurements of an object and everything on our planet has a measurable mass and weight. Neither are effected by volume, as the volume of a hot air balloon, which is considerably larger than that of an anvil, has a much lower mass and weight. Mass and weight are effected by matter directly. The mass of a neutron star is so high that a simple drinking straw may weigh close to one ton.

Mass is a measure of matter contained in an object while weight is the measure of gravity pull on that object. If the force of gravity is constant, then mass and weight of that object
Weight is how gravity is affecting the mass of an object. While mass stays the same no matter where it is, the weight of an object changes depending on how strong the gravity is where
Mass is the amount of matter something contains. Weight is the pull of gravity on an object. If
1. Convert the weight measured in pounds to the equivalent in Newtons. In the formula for determining mass based on weight, mass is measured in Newtons. Weight is measured in Kilograms
