    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    A 13.25 kg box rest on a table. What is the weight of the box?

    2. Relevant equations

    I know this is really easy, but how would I do this?

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Weight is a force (F). Do you have a formula to determine force with m (mass) in it? 2nd law... What is the a (acceleration due to gravity at the surface of the earth)? This has been measured and should be firmly in your head. You got m, you got a, find F.
