 P: 98 1. What are the standard units for inertial mass and gravitational mass? And also apparently gravitational mass can be measured without gravity how can it be done? Thank you very much. My teacher said a hint is in the movie A space odysey 2001.
 Emeritus Sci Advisor PF Gold P: 4,980 What do you think so far?
 P: 98 i thnk gravitational mass is N/kg and inertial..I have no idea =(

 Quote by LadiesMan i thnk gravitational mass is N/kg and inertial..I have no idea =(
That would be incorrect. Its not a trick question. What units do you usually use for mass?
 P: 98 we would use kg, or grams, etc.
 Emeritus Sci Advisor PF Gold P: 4,980 Well the SI unit is kg.
 P: 98 oh thank you =), so how can I determine the SI units for inertial mass?
 Emeritus Sci Advisor PF Gold P: 4,980 What units do you use for mass in equations like F=ma?
 P: 98 oh also kilograms, so that means the inertial mass is in kilograms too?
