Weight = mass * gravity

Force or weight Force= mass X acceleration gravity is an acceleration (9.8m/s2) Weight = mass X acceleration due to gravity

Mass is the mass, weight is mass with gravity acting upon it

Weight = mass x gravity

Weight = (mass) x (local acceleration of gravity). Mass = (weight) / (local acceleration of gravity) If you know the weight and the local acceleration of gravity, you can calculate the mass. Anywhere on or near the surface of the earth, the local acceleration of gravity is about 9.82 meters per second2 . As an example, an object with a weight of 9.82 newtons has a mass of one kilogram.

Mass is the quantitiy of matter. But weight is the force of pull on the mass due to gravity. So mass is invariant where as weight depends on the gravity. If acceleration due to gravity is zero, then weight too becomes zero. So in free space mass exists but weight vanishes.

No. Mass is independent of gravity, but weight is a function of gravity and mass.

well weight depends on mass and gravity so gravity depends on mass. e.g weight=mass X gravity

The difference is that the mass density not effect by gravity but weight density effect by gravity. for example if mass density cotn in earth equal to 20 kg/m3 and weight density equal to 196.2 N/m3 this cotn will change the weight density in the moon but mass density not change because gravity moon diffrent to gravity earth mass density =mass/volume (no gravity) weight density= (mass * gravity)/volume (gravity)

Mass is the amount of matter in an object, the more mass something has the more gravity something has.

Mass is the amount of matter contained in an object. Gravity is determined by the mass of two objects and the distance between them. Weight is the resulting force.

Weight = mass x gravity

The weight is dependent on the mass. Mass is the same everywhere but since weight is mass * acceleration due to gravity, weight is the dependent variable.

The mass is basically NOT affected by gravity. The weight IS affected, and it is equal to mass x gravity.
