## Weight Formula

Weight is nothing but the force that gravity receives. It is represented by W and Newton is its SI unit. It is expressed as the product of mass and gravitational acceleration. Therefore, the weight of a particular object changes in response to the gravity of that particular space. Therefore, objects of similar mass will appear on different planets with different weights.

## Formula

**W = mg**

Where,

W = weight of the object

m = mass of the object

g = acceleration due to gravity

## Solved examples

**1. If the mass is 60 kg, do you want to calculate the weight of a body in the moon? g is given as 1.625 m / s ^{2}.**

Formula of m = 60kg and

g = 1.625 m / s^{2}

weight,

W = mg

W = 60 × 1.625

W = 97.5N

**2. Do you want to calculate the weight of an object on Earth with a mass of 25 kg?**

The formulas for m = 25 kg and

g = 9.8 m / s^{2}

weight is:

W = mg

W = 25 × 9.8

B = 245N
