“The quantity of matter possessed by the substances is called as Mass.” It is an independent quantity and remains stable in every part of the world. Kilogram (kg), Grams (g), and Milligram (mg) are the units used to measure mass. The formula for mass is, m = f/a. “f” is the force of the object while “a” is the acceleration of the object (gravitational force).

“A measurement of the gravitational force acting on an object is called as Weight.” It depends upon the value of the gravitational force and is expressed in Newton (N). Weight of an object fluctuates with the changes in the gravitational force, acting on it. A spring balance is used to calculate weigh of the matters. The formula to compute is, Weight = mass x acceleration due to gravity.
