Mass And Weight

Postby reave » Wed Mar 12, 2014 4:42 pm

Mass is constant but weight is a force exerted by that mass, that is dependent on the gravitational field and centrifugal force.  One Kg of mass weights less when on the moon or in orbit than on earth. It will weigh less at the equator that the North pole

Mass is the quantity of matter contained in a material and it remains same everywhere. Weight is the amount of force by which the mass is pulled by the gravitational force of earth and it can be increased and decreased by the impact of gravitational force

W=M=F/H Where: Fat = attracction between two massive bodies in a gravitational field.M= bulk in 0-GF=acceleration constant.G= appeal one massive body to a different(usually a vectorial total). Let's suggest that an object weighs 1 Kilogram in 1-G.  We've a mutual interest between your earth and the object, nevertheless the pressure may change as we proceed to or from the earth. If we drop the object, it maintains its mass but is becoming practically weightless.If we acceerate the object upwards, the mass stays constant but the weight raises proportionally.  If we increase the object upwards in the same price as it'd fall, then we've twice the weight. Basic, I'll acknowledge, however it is correct.
