# Weight And Mass Flashcards

Mass is how much stuff you are made from. It is measured in…

…kilograms (kg)

Weight is how much force you put on the ground. It is all to the amount of gravity there is. It is measured in…

… Newtons (N)

Weight and mass are related by the formula:

Weight = mass x gravity

Is the strength of gravity the same or different on other planets?

The strength of gravity is different on other planets.

On Earth, what is the formula to find weight and mass?

G = 10 N/kg

On the Moon, what is the formula to find weight and mass?

G = 1.5 N/kg

On Jupiter , what is the formula to find weight and mass?

G = 25 N/kg

On Pluto , what is the formula to find weight and mass?

G = 0.5 N/kg

In deep space, what is the formula to find weight and mass?

G = 0N/kg
