Question:

What is the difference between mass and weight?

Rachel M.
Answer:

Weight is the force exerted on a body in a gravitational field. Mass is a physical property of the object that remains unchanged regardless of the strength of the gravitational field. For instance, Sally's mass is 70 kg (on the Earth and the moon). Sally will weigh more on Earth than the moon because the gravitational acceleration on Earth is approximately 9.8 m/s2, while the gravitational acceleration on the moon is 1.6 m/s2.
