Formula for find the mass of an object?

  1. Mar 26, 2011 #1
    If weight at the earth's surface is equal to its mass times the acceleration of gravity? would mass be equal to weight divided by acceleration of gravity? or because mass is a constant it can't be found by weight or gravity?

    Yes, the mass of an object is its weight divided by the acceleration of gravity.
