Difference Between Mass and Weight

Matter is anything that has mass and occupies space.


1. Refers to the quantity of matter in an object

2. Mass is independent of gravity

3. It is the result of comparison of an unknown mass with a known mass called standard mass

4. Mass is an extensive property. The fundamental unit of mass in the metric system is gram.


1. Is the force of gravity on an object. Weight = Mass X Acceleration due to gravity

2. Weight is dependent of gravity

3. Gravity is not constant throughout the earth. So weight may vary from one place to the other.

4. When gravity is constant, mass is directly proportional to weight

Mass α weight, when gravity is constant.
