Main Question or Discussion Point
Sorry for the unoriginal question but what is the differnece between mass and weight? Its been bothering me lately Does mass change? What exactly is mass?
So your weight on the moon is less albeit your mass is the same.In modern scientific usage, however, weight and mass are fundamentally different quantities: mass is an intrinsic property of matter, whereas weight is a force that results from the action of gravity on matter: it measures how strongly gravity pulls on that matter.
