In everyday life, the terms mass and weight are interchangeable. However, in physics mass and weight do not mean the same.
The force of gravity acting on an object is called...?
A measure of the amount of matter in an object
Measured in newtons, N
A force of 1N is approximately the force needed to lift?
A sugar cube
What is the gravitational field strength of Earth?
How is weight calculated?
Weight = mass × gravitational field strength
Weight = gravitational field strength ÷ mass
Weight = mass ÷ gravitational field strength
What is the weight of a 40 kg child on Earth (g = 10 N/kg)?
A car has a weight of 10,000 N. What is the mass of the car on Earth (g = 10 N/kg)?
What is a newton meter?
A unit for speed
A calibrated spring-balance
A unit for weight
Which of the following statements is false?
