The weight of an object is the product of its mass, m, and the acceleration of gravity, g (where g=9.8 m/s2). If an object’s mass is m=10. kg, what is its weight?

Weight is a measurement of [latex]F_{normal} [/latex] [latex]F_{normal} = ma [/latex] m= 10.0 kg a=g=9.8 m/s² Hence, [latex] F_{normal}= ma[/latex] [latex] F_{normal}= (10)(9.8) [/latex] [latex] F_{normal}= 98 N[/latex] I hope that was helpful PS This isn't chemistry, this is physics
