### What is the relationship between mass weight gravity?

weight = mass x gravity

### What is the relationship between weight mass and gravity?

weight = mass x gravity

### What relationship exists between mass and weight?

Weight = mass x gravityWeight = mass x gravityWeight = mass x gravityWeight = mass x gravity

### What the difference between mass and weight and how they pertain to gravity?

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.

### Do weight and mass both depend on gravity?

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

### Does gravity depend on mass or weight?

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

### Distinguish between mass density and weight density?

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)

### Relationship between mass weight and gravity?

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

### What determines the value of gravity mass and weight?

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.

### What relationship does mass weight and gravity have?

Weight = mass x gravity

### Between mass and weight which is dependent on the other?

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.

### What affected by gravity the weight or the mass?

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