The weight of the object is 0.5kg

I'm using the equation

F = m * a

Is it correct to use weight of the object instead of mass in the equation.

Will it yield correct results?

Or would I need to calculate "mass" of the object first using the equation

m = W / g

where W is weight of the object and g is acceleration due to gravity.
